Inscription.  

To attempt to tell the story of the wonderfully- gathered and splendidly-lodged Gardner Collection would be to displace a little the line that separates private from public property.... It is in presence of the results magnificently attained, the energy triumphant over everything, that one feels the fine old disinterested tradition of Boston least broken.
Henry James, The American Scene, 1907
 
Erected by Boston 200. (Marker Number FW04.)
