Inscription.  
Born into slavery in 1856, T. Thomas Fortune went on to become one of the most influential American journalists and newspaper publishers of the 19th and 20th centuries.

A stalwart of social justice, “His pen knew but one theme—the right of man,” said Kelly Miller, Dean of Howard University, upon Fortune’s passing in 1928.
LOVE’S DIVINEST POWER
—————————————
Let mad ambition strive to gain
The cherished wish that yields but pain;
Let others seek for wealth alone,
And with its cares their lives atone;
But let me live my fleeting hour
The slave of Love's divinest power
