"O love the lord and he will be a tender/ father unto thee". This and several more religious verses
and an alphabet separated by intricately stitched decortative bands is the theme of this very finely stitched sampler.
It is inscribed at the bottom: "Rebekah Perkin Ended This Sampler In The Year/ Of Our Lord - 1726 - And In
The 9 Year Of Her/ Age"
Silk on wool; 12" x 9" sight.
The condition is perfect except for some small scattered holes in the background fabric.
