Note from Rachel Pace (granddaughter of George D. Taylor): I found the copy of book that grandpa gave to his mother with an inscription "Mother; This is your special copy. I wish I could overlay it with Silver Engraving, for your enthusiasm and appreciation of what is inside is my greatest reward for having written it. George. Apr 24, 1950."
