Inscription.  
Charlotte Holand Vance Morrill could hold a grudge. When in 1869, her husband Lot lost his seat in the U.S. Senate to Hannibal Hamlin, she blamed James G. Blaine, who from then on she refused to allow in her house. Lot Morrill served as governor, U.S. Senator and Secretary of the Treasury. Lot, his brother Anson, and Hannibal Hamlin formed a coalition concerned about the spread of slavery and the power of slave states. In the Senate, Morrill led the debate to abolish slavery. He supported Reconstruction and voted to impeach President Johnson. Morrill resigned from the Senate in 1876 to become Secretary of the Treasury under President Ulysses S. Grant (whom Charlotte did allow to visit).
