Eldridge was probably familiar with John Henry Hopkins' "An Essay on Gothic Architecture", the first book on Gothic ecclesiastical architecture to be published in the United States. St. John's is a good representative of a small group of American churches inspired by Hopkins' book. [http://urban.csuohio.edu/sacredlandmarks/csl/gothic.html]

*The Ohio City Exchange (1835)
