Residence of Thomas Walter, Esq.
 
     Northwest of Mexico, and directly on the river bank, was the residence of Thomas Walter, Esq., the botanist, an Englishman by birth. He embellished his seat with a botanical garden, which long commanded the admiration of his neighbors. His first wife was Sarah Peyre, by whom he had two daughters; his second wife was Dolly Cooper, whose daughter, Emily, their only child, married Judge Charlton of Savannah.
