Inscription(s)/Marks/Lettering:

Lettered, lower center: "At summer eve, when Heaven's ethereal bow | Spans with bright arch the glittering hills below, | Why to yon mountain turns the musing eye, | Whose sunbright summit mingles with the sky? | Why do those cliffs of shadowy tint appear | More sweet than all the landscape smiling near?-- | 'Tis distance lends enchantment to the view, | And robes the mountain in its azure hue. | Thus with delight, we linger to survey | The promised joys of lif's unmeasured way;"
