About the Sampler from Nicola Parkman:

"Minnie’s sweet sampler certainly stood out for us as an example of a child’s needlework. Using only two colours, the twelve-year-old child recorded her alphabet in the upper and lower case, her numbers through 1 to 10, and a verse taken from Exodus 20:12.

 “Honour thy father and mother that thy days may belong upon the land and which the Lord thy God giveth thee”.
