I love them that love me, and those that seek me> early shall find me And I will be a Father unto your, and> ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the LORD GOD> ALMIGHTLY' and 'Wilt thou not from this time cry unto me, My father, thou art> the guide of my youth. Jeremiah III Chapter verse'. Signed and dated, 'Sarah Soul Aged 12 1856'.

Good. Any fading, hole, stain, defect or stitch loss that may be present, is minor and not detracting.
