Note:

As quoted by Tony P. Wrenn, Wilmington, North Carolina: An Architectural and Historical Portrait (1984), the specifications by Howe explained that the porch, for example, was to be “of neat and handsome appearance, with proper shaped roof, with gutter formed in the cornice and supported by four tasteful & ornamental pillars or columns in frant, and half antae in the rear; to have neat siderails with turned balusters, and to have entrance steps in front of easy ascent, supported or flanked by neat side buttresses.”
