'Treasury Department; White House Front View; Smithsonian Institute; [Capitol Building], City Hall, White House Rear View; View from Agricultural Grounds', Washington DC, USA. 'The most striking object at Washington is undoubtedly the magnificent white-marble Capitol...It rises majestically far above all surrounding objects, amid a nest of thick and darkly verdant foliage, on the brow of the hill to which it gives its name; its very lofty dome, with its tiers of columns, its rich ornamentation, and its summit surmounted by the colossal statue of Liberty, presents a noble appearance, and may be seen for many miles around'. From "Picturesque America; or, The Land We Live In, A Delineation by Pen and Pencil of the Mountains, Rivers, Lakes...with Illustrations on Steel and Wood by Eminent American Artists" Vol. II, edited by William Cullen Bryant.

Draft of the...reestablishment of the Gregorian calendar, 29 August 1805, (1921). Creator: Unknown

Draft of the senate consultation on the reestablishment of the Gregorian calendar, 29 August 1805, (1921). 'Projet de senatus-consulte retablissement le calendrier gregorien'. Document signed by Emperor Napoleon I and dated 'Dec[ade] 12 Fructidor, an 13', dealing with the reintroduction of the Gregorian calendar, replacing the French Republican calendar. Also known as the French Revolutionary calendar, the system was implemented during the French Revolution and used for about 12 years from late 1793 to 1805, (and for 18 days by the Paris Commune in 1871). The intention had been to remove all religious and royalist influences from the calendar, and was part of a larger attempt at decimalisation in France. Facsimile document from "Napoleon", by Raymond Guyot, [H. Floury, Paris, 1921]
