Description: Plain weave sampler with silk embroidery, floral border, floral motifs, and poem. Text: "In Sharon's lovely Rose, Immortal beauties/ shine; Its sweet refreshing fragrance shows;/ Its origin divine./ Pleasure is a Rose, near which there ever grows/ the thorn of evil; It is wisdom's work so carefully/ to cull the Rose, as to avoid the thorn, and let its/ rich perfume exhale to heaven in grateful adoration/ of Him who gave the Rose to blow./ Mary Louise Brown, November 2nd 1829."
