In 1899 Alfred Cart de Lafontaine welcomed a group of guests from the Rotary Club into his home for a tour of Athelhampton that commenced beneath the cedar tree.    The script for the presentation has been published in The Visitation by Owen Davies and the title of this exhibition reflects the significance of this rare insight into the thoughts of de Lafontaine, one of Athelhampton's most transformative, yet enigmatic, owners.
