Hannah Coffin, Nine Partners Boarding School, Verse, c. 1800
Noted needlework teacher, Hannah Coffin, of the Quaker Nine Partners Boarding School in Dutchess County, NY, pens a verse on American samplers. c. 1800
"For a Lady's Sampler
Jesus permit they gracious name to stand / As the first efforts of an infant hand / And while her fingers o'v this canvas move / Engage her tender heart to seek thy love / With they dear children let her share a part / And write thy name thyself upon her heart."
