Riedesel House

“The Riedesel House, Cambridge. This is from a pencil sketch by Mr. Longfellow. I am also indebted to him for the fac-simile of the autograph of the Baroness of Riedesel. It will be perceived that the i is placed before the e in spelling the name. I have heretofore given it with the e first, which is according to the orthography in Burgoyne’s State of the Expedition, wherein I supposed it was spelled correctly. This autograph shows it to be erroneous. Mr. Longfellow’s beautiful poem, ‘The Open Window,’ refers to this mansion."—Lossing, 1851
