Needlework Sampler by Susannah B. Copeland Susquehanna Valley McConnelsburg, PA  dated 1820



Susannah B. Copeland
Susquehanna Valley
McConnelsburg, PA  dated 1820



Susannah worked this beautiful large sampler with graphic imagery and poignant verses.
 


Let spotless innocence and truth
my every action guide
And guard my unexperienc’d youth
from vanity and pride

 

Let fervent charity remain
for ever in my brest
O Let me feel another’s pain
In others joys be blest

 

And when thy wisdom sees it best
To fix my mortal day
Let angel to eternal rest
My trembling soul convay

 


When we devote our youth to god
Tis pleasing in his eyes
A flower when offer’d in the bud
Is no vain sacrifice

 


She also included an image of a modest house with this charming verse.

 

Grandure flies my humble roof
Tho wealth is not my share
Tho lonely is my little house
Yet happiness is there

 

Silk on linen.
