Inscription.

Went to school with Lincolns. Brother to Aaron Grigsby who married Abe Lincoln's oldest sister. Visited in White House.

Through this inscription I wish to enter my dying protest against what is called the Democratic party I have watched it closely since the days of Jackson and know that all the misfortunes of our nation has come to it through this so called party therefore beware of this party of treason.
