Meandering floral border. Colours black, cream, copper, pink, green and blue. Verse entitled, 'FILIAL DUTY ' reads, 'Honor thy Parents to prolong thy End. With them,> tho for a Truth, do not contend. Tho all themselves> defend, do thou chuse rather To hold thy Peace, than> lose their Love for ever. Whoever makes his Parents> Heart to bleed. Shall have a child that will revenge'. Signed and dated 'ANN HOLLINGWORTH, HER SAMPLER FINISHED IN THE 12th Y OF HER AGE 1808. E GIRTON, GOVERNESS, NEWARK'.

Generally Good. Any fading, hole, stain, defect or stitch loss, when present, is not overly detracting.
