In memory of Allan Pinkerton, born in Glascow, Scotland, August 25th 1819. Died in Chicago, Illinois July 1st 1884. Aged 65 years.

A friend to honesty and a foe to crime, devoting himself for a generation to the prevention and detection of crime in many countries. He was the founder in America of a noble profession. In the house of the nation's peril, he conducted Abraham Lincoln safely through the ranks of treason to the scene of his first inauguration as President. He sympathized with, protected and defended the slaves, and labored earnestly for their freedom. Hating wrong, and loving good, he was strong, brave, tender and true.
