Sampler, yellow cotton, embroidered with polychrome silks in cross, satin, stem and chain stitch. The edges are cut. A honey suckle border with an inner border of meandering floral sprays enclose a repeat border pattern, two angels, a flower basket and a small panel inscribed 'Mary Livermore June 14-1815'. A third narrow border encloses a central panel with the religious verse' Co ie bless'd Religion with thy angels face/Dispel this gloom and brighten all the place/Drive this destructive passion from my breast/Compose my sorrows and restore my rest/ Shew me the path the sainted virgins trod/ Wean me from earth and raise my Soul to God/ Shall fleeting minds the Almightys words disperse/ Confus'd I search the direfull rolls in vain/ The eternal honour shines without a stain/ Unblemish'd shines in men and angels view/ Just are thy ways/thou King of saints and true'.
