Later, / after he had added his tower / study, he used this room as / his library and in it read / aloud to his family all of / Sir Walter Scott's Waverley novels. // Margaret M. Lothrop / The Wayside / Concord, Massachusetts / September twenty-ninth / 1941" (personalized to Richard Browne). The Wayside (as Hillside) had also been home to a young Louisa Alcott.
