This was the second of four gravestones made to Mackintosh's design. It was probably commissioned through Reid's son-in-law, William Davidson, who became Mackintosh's most loyal patron.

Authorship: A photograph of the stone was published under Mackintosh's name in 1902, and a signed drawing for it survives, confirming his authorship.
