This early sampler was finished by Sarah Hampson November 1836 at age 13. It has the following Bible Verse_ "Daniel because he to his God would prey Twas by the king's command without deley Thrown to the lions but the stand in fear They durst not tuch him Daniels God was there. Then cried the king with a loud voice. Saying great art thou o lord god of Daniel And there is none other beside thee and he Drew him out and cast hose that were The cause of his destruction into the den." Sarah was not the best speller as you can see. The verse is framed with a stylized flower design. It is framed under glass in a black frame. The measurement is 13 1/2" 16 1/2". There is damage to the fabric in the center of the sampler on the word, "great". Otherwise there is very minor staining.
