band sampler from Huber by Mary Visitelly aged 11

Mary Visitelly
Band Sampler
London, England dated 1746

This very colorful early band sampler is inscribed: MARY VISITELLY HER SAMPLER ENDED/ IN THE 11TH YEAR OF HER AGE 1746. Also included between the intricately stitched bands are various rhymes, a little girls exposure from much earlier times.

Pray Thou To God That He May Be Inclined/ To Grant Thee Health Of Body And Of Mind.

Remember The Time Will Come When We Must Give/ An Account To God How We On Earth Do Live.

Spare Not Nor Spend Too Much Be This Thy Care/ Spare Not To Spend And Only Spend To Spare.

Knowledge When Wisdom Is Too Weak To Guide Her/ Is Like A Headstrong Horse That Throws His Rider.

Mary was Christened at St. Botolph, Aldgate parish London on 26 October, 1735.

Silk on linen; 12 x 9 unframed.
