Seven Dollars

Here's an old favorite — one that should be familiar to anyone who has read Graven Images. This stone is about five miles from my parents' house, just down the road from Horace W. Porter School, home of the Panthers. The Porter Panthers are the arch-rivals of my alma mater, Windham Middle School (home of the Wildcats).
Zerubbabel Collins carved this stone after he moved to Vermont. He sent it home to Columbia, where it both memorialized Mrs. Bennitt and advertised Mr. Collins' wares.
