Verse entitled, 'Chrift and Mary Magdalene' reads, 'Jefus faith unto her, Touch me not for I am not yet afcended to my Fa->ther'. Signed and dated 'Elizabeth Rofs finifh'd this Piece of Work Anno Domini 1786'. Wonderfully detailed country scene to the centre, depicting Christ and Mary Magdalene with sheep.
