Inscription
In the "Masonic Hall" on this site, the British author lectured (Feb. 11-12, 1856), as guest of The Young Men`s Library Assn. He wrote home: "Nice quaint old town Augusta, rambling great street 2 miles long, doctors and shopkeepers the society of the place, the latter far more independent and gentlemanlike than our folks, much pleasanter to be with than the daring go ahead northern people. Slavery no where repulsive, the black faces invariably happy and plump, the white ones eager and hard. I brought away 60 Guineas for 2 hours talking, a snug little purse from snug little Augusta."
