1820 Mary Ann Fleet sampler

SMALL-EARLY-19TH-CENTURY-VERSE-SAMPLER-BY-MARY-ANN-FLEET-AGED-9-c-1820-1830-381342476545

Fragment of a text sampler. It originally had a border around three sides that has been removed. What remains are three stanzas from a song exhorting young ladies not to rely on their good looks. The song is number 118 shown in a book from 1785, The Humming Bird, available in archive.org, https://archive.org/details/hummingbirdacol00birdgoog/page/n316/mode/2up The sampler text uses an f instead of the long s. The printed text shows the letters are very slightly different.
