A copy with an interesting provenance, bearing a gift inscription to George Milburn from Meyer and Albertine Grover. Milburn was an Associate Justice of Montana from 1901-06. He had been born in Washington, D.C., and traveled first to Mexico and then to Montana after attending law school. Upon his death in 1911, he was described by his colleagues as "an old-time Democrat of the school of Jefferson."
