Inscription. Young Sam Clemens (Mark Twain) saw a dead man on the floor in here one night. Sam went out at a window, taking the sash along with him. "I didn't need the sash," he recalled, "but it was handier to take it than it was to leave it. So I took it. I wasn't exactly scared, but I was -ah-considerably agitated!"
