Framed needlework sampler worked by Ann Burditts dated April 12, 1776, Massachusetts or English
geometric vine and alpha numeric borders, centering field of flowers and signed Ann Burditts Work April 12 1776 above:
Here let soft slumber close my eyes
Before you've recollected thrice
The train of actions through the day
Where have my feet chose out their way
What have I learnt where ere I been,
From all Ive heard from all Ive seen
What know I more that's worth the knowing
What have I done that's worth the doing
What have I sought that I should shun
What duty have I left undone
Or into what new follies run
These self-inquiries are the road
That leads to virtue and to God

Provenance: Cornelius, North Carolina private collection.
