''The recession of the upper order is greater than in St Pauls London; / but the whole is of taller, narrower, proportions. / The recession of St Pauls is a little more than St Peters; The degree / of recession in St Peters is good; it looks well. Recession should not exceed / that of St Peters. Perhaps less would look better in some cases.'
