A beautiful blue monochrome alphabet sampler from England. Nine-year-old Elizabeth Laidman stitched it in 1760. The verse makes this sampler so endearing. The Alphabet is missing the "J" because it was not a letter used back then. In old English, “I” was used for both the “I” sounds and the “J” sound. The verse in the sampler is from an old book by William Kenrick (a not very popular man) titled "The Whole Duty of a Woman" (published 1753)
