TiondltloH it was in JeOeTBtJifs day. This Is the
result of years of search for its original furnish
ings, and a visit to this great mansion iR-roplete
with memories of him who fashioned it and
"brought for Its decoration the works of tho
greatest artisans of France. v
Timely interest attaches to Montlcello because
of the active efforts of Mrs. Martin V. Littleton
and others to prevail upon congress to buy tho
estate, while Mr. Lovy is determined to retnln
it, both because of tho loving caro bestowed upon
tho property by his family and tho fact that tho
.; public enjoys ndmlsslon to It as fully and freely
us though It wero owned by the nation.

the Rivana river, two miles from tho foot of tho

top of tho ukjntain that oATsbadowed tho low
land wherein was hla parental home; and how,
finally, ho came into possession of Montlcello nnd
realized ono of his boyish dreams.
Tho great dome of tho mountain did not offer
sufficient room for tho mansion ho had conceived,
and ten years of labor with head, heart and
bands elapsed beforo the crest of tho hill had
been leveled. Seven years moro It took to crown
this man-made plateau with tho mngniflcent man
sion to which presidents, princes nnd the people
have made common pllgrlmago to pay homngo
to tho memory of the man whoso wonderful mind
and tireless encrev found time from tlin nffnlra
IW- of stato to evolve ono of tho most remarkablo
specimens of Colonial architecture in exlstcnco.
Montlcello llos about two mile3 south and flvo
miles west of tho busy little town of Chnrlottes
vllle, and it is upgrade every inch, of tho way.

son and Randolph families. In loving tribute, too,

brought from Europo to help build his mansion
aro Interred in this plot.
Leaving the grave to the majestic solltudo of
tho forest which Burrounds it, tho visitor follows
tho winding road still upward through a magnifi
cent park of oaks, maples and pines until an
abrupt turn in tho path brings him to tho main
entrance to the Montlcello mansion. To tho right,
on a lower terrace, Is a quaint old mansard
roofod house, built by Jefferson before the man
sion was completed, and It was tho loom houso,
where the cotton, linen nnd woolen cloths for the
Jefferson household were woven and spun.
Turning to the left, tho first view of Montlcel
lo shows tho "President's walk," a causeway of
Imposing simplicity In which several sets of mar
ble steps break tho slight Incline to tho plateau
above. On ono of these aro placed two massive
marblo lions that guard tho immediate approach
to the house.
Passing up 'tho "President's walk," flanked by
neatly trimmed bay trees, the visitor Is brought
to tho main grounds, the plateau thnt took ten
years to level on the mountain top.
A spacious veranda with tessellated floor leads
to tho reception hall, a cool, stately room where
formal tranquillity Is evident In the unusual
height of tho celling, nn air of spaciousness and
general atmosphere of refinement. The hall is so
largo and the door of such genorous slzo that a
coach and four might be driven through. Just
nt tho entrance, deeply cut into tho floor, tltero
Is tho print of a horse's hoof that was mado
whon tho British General Tarleton raldod Montl
cello nnd rode up tho marble staircase, through
tho magnificent hall and out through the salon
on his fruitless search for Jefferson.
To fully describe the curios and relics that
aro unfolded to the gazo of tho visitor would fill
a volume. Thero aro so many and each has Its
story of historic association, nil deeply Interest
ing and in all forming a colloctlon that would
stock a good-sized museum.
Standing In tho entrance one faces tho gallery
which half encircles tho hall a gallery so grace
fully proportioned that Stanford White, the noted
architect, declared "tho beauty of that gallery
may never bo reproduced, especially tho railing,
for overy portion of it was mado by hands whose
art Is nearly lost In the modern mnchlno era."
In one cornor of this hall Is Jefferson's old
music 6tand. Mado of walnut, it is almost black
from age, and there Is pasted under the music
shelf a bit of paper upon which Jefferson signed
Next to this rack Is a column and capital, tho

during his administration at the White Houso
and in Paris when ho was ambassador to Franco.
Stepping between double glass doors, that have
an Ingenious mechnnlsm for opening that would
bo a credit to modern housebuilding craft, tho
visitor enters tho grand salon, an octagonal room
with six French windows that reach from floor
to celling. Hero the impresBlon is felt at once
of dellcato but luxurious refinement. Priceless
treasures of art, relics of Jofforaon and heirlooms
of the Levy family, aro stored In this high-ceil-lnged
This salon 1b, indeed, ji r oom of wonders. Mod
eled after the stato apjj.tjment of Louis XIV, it

ferson choso red for tho basic tone In prefcrenco

Much has been written of tho simplicity of
" Jefferson. Tc many Montlcello signifies only a
fine example of Colonial America roominess and
comfort. In fact, Jefferson furnished his mansion
not with crudo manufactures of tho Colonies, but
fitted his homo with all tho ornate richness of
the finest palaces of continental Europo. And,
ns In the decorating and furnishing of the build
ing, he was equally esthetic in his cure for tho
creature comfort of his guests.
Most of tho things that were in Jefferson's
study have been lost track of, but Mr. Levy still
has a few, and on one corner of tho floor thero
remain thousands of Ink stains mado by Jeffer
sons' flipping off tho superfluous Ink from his
Of the ' original articles there remain a flat

When Jefferson died his relatives and heirs de
cided they could not afford the groat exponso of
keeping open tho Iioubo as It then stood. Much
of tho furniture nnd furnishings wero distributed
by will, gift or purchase. Mrs. Martha Jeffer
son Randolph, daughter of tho statesman and
executrix of his will, decided to continue her
homo at Edgo Hill, tho Randolph estate, and
wnB anxious to dispose of Montlcello. Tho plnco
was sold to James T. Barclay, a missionary, who
held It but a short tlmo and then offored It for
Commodore Uriah Phillips Levy, thon a lieu
tenant In tho navy, drove from New York city to
Montlcello to Inspect tho property and concluded
a deal by which ho acquired from Barclay tho
Jefferson mansion nnd 218 ncres of tho original
estate. It was run down from lack of attention
and thero waB Uttlo or tho original Inside fur
nishings left. Sentlmontnl reasons prompted tho
commodoro to get back tho things thnt had be
longed to tho man who built tho wonderful Iioubo,
nnd for years ho sought to regain tho articles
that had been scattered nbout tho country.
Then camo tho wnr of tho statos, and the com
modore, continuing his allegiance to tho Union,
was declared an "alien enemy" by tho Confed
eracy, tho estate was confiscated and the contents
advertised for sale at public auction. Again tho
mansion was partly stripped of its furnishings,
nnd many pieces of furniture were sold at tho
confiscation salo to families residing In tho neigh
borhood. Somo of tho articles wero returned
after tho war.
After tho wnr, however, when legal adjust
ment of the estate of Commodoro Lovy was had
nnd Jofforson M. Lovy Inherited the proporty, Mr.
Lovy continued the InborB of tho commodore fn
restoring tho homo as Jefferson had planned and
' left it.
A majority of tho nrtlcles wero recovered, but
those pieces that had been taken from the coun
try were boyond reach nnd fow of them wero traced.
With this as his nucleus, howovor, Jefferson M.
Levy mado thorough search of family records and
documents, as woll aa getting information from
living friends and relatlvos who had known tho
homo when Jefferson lived, nnd from that list
ho has since attempted to get In his many trips
abroad exact duplicates of tho works of art,
furniture and ornnmonts originally brought from
Franco by Jefferson. In this Mr. Lovy has suc
ceeded with consldorablo accuracy, fitting up
Montlcello so exactly as it was originally that
Thomas Jefferson might stop into tho homo in
spirit nnd find it familiar with objects Intimate
with his earthly residence
