Note:
The Greek Revival house with an Italianate porch features a full and exuberant ensemble of Day's work, including a geometric stair and a distinctive mantel flanked by arched niches. A receipt for deduction of $4 for "not finish of fire piece" is a rare bit of documentation for any of Day's surviving architectural woodwork.
