Interior Frieze and dentil cornice below domed plaster roof, rear wall has round-
headed niche, with marble tablet over with quotation from Milton's Paradise Lost,
"Over head up grow
Insuperable height of loftiest shade;
Cedar and fir and branching palm,
A sylvan scene; and as the ranks ascend
Shade above shade, a woody theatre
Of Statliest view."
The Temple is shown on an engraving by John Crook dated 1819.
