"The Livingston Mansion. This is a view from the lawn on the north side. It is embowerd in trees and shrubbery, and is one of the most pleasantly-located mansions in the country, overlooking interesting portios of the Hudson River. Within its walls many of the leading men of the Revolution were entertained. It was the head-quarters of Washington, when he abandoned an attempt to capture Cornwallis. There, at the close of the war, Washington, Governor Clinton, and General Sir Guy Carleton, and their respective suites, met to make arrangements for the evacuation of the city of New York by the British. Washington and Clinton came down the river from West Point in a barge; Carleton ascended in a frigate. Four companies of American Infantry performed the duty of guards on that occasion."—Lossing, 1851
