LUCRETIA T. BREWSTER
Lucretia at aged eleven worked this band sampler with a small Greek Key border and solidly stitched black background
band with a girl holding a basket leading a horse. Both the border and the black band are characteristic of Norwich,
CT samplers. She included four alphabets, a verse from Alexander Pope (Teach me to feel another’s woe/ To hide
the faults I see/ That mercy I to others show/ That mercy show to me.), and inscribed the bottom with her name,
birth date, and age.
