[R] Putting a text box in a plot

Here is a kind of example:
plot(density(rnorm(1000)))
text(c(2,2),c(0.2,0.21),labels=c("Skewness","Kurtosis"), pos=4, cex=0.7)
text(c(3,3),c(0.2, 0.21), labels=c(1.1, 2.2), pos=4, cex=0.7)
There is a function in some library that produces text boxes (with
borders) that can be placed inside a plot.
That is what I need - a bordered box containing text inside a plot. So
legend() and mtext() do not apply here, and text() is just too raw.
There is a special function for that, as I say. I once asked on an R
forum, and somebody directed me to this function. Unfortunately, I am
not successful googling that question of mine. It's been a few years.
Best,
Sergey
