This beautiful sampler is typical of what young girls would have done in the 1800’s as a way to display the sewing skills that they were learning. There is a decorative cross stitched border as well as trees, flowers, and animals surrounding the verse. The young lady who created this put her name and the date at the bottom of the sampler, making it even more unique. Sampler reads,

“Hear what the voice from Heaven, Proclaims for all the pious dead

Sweet is the savour of their names, And soft their sleeping bed

They die in Jesus and are blessed, How kind their slumbers are

From sufferings and from sin released, And freed from every snare

Far from the world of toil and strife, They are present with the Lord

The labours of their mortal life, End in a huge reward

In her 10th Year, Thomasin Elizabeth Newman May 11, 1837”
