"His[Jefferson's]eye, like his mind, sought an extended view" (Dumas Malone). Augment usually applies to what is already developed or well under way: augmented her collection of books; depression that augments with each visit to the hospital. To multiply is to increase in number, especially by propagation or procreation: "As for my cats, they multiplied" (Daniel Defoe). "May thy days be multiplied!" (Sir Walter Scott).
