This classic 18th century Boston, MA area sampler is inscribed, "Mary Kendall's work wrought in the
thirteenth year of her age". Wide outer borders with deep arcades, sawtooth inner border surrounding
verse, central pot of flowers, house and figures are characteristic of samplers from the Cambridge area. Mary included
mirror image motifs of a mother and child, white birds outlined in black, and heart and flowers.
