Slave's Prayer Sampler

Some months ago, Karin Walton, Curator of Applied Art, submitted a case to The Friends to fund the purchase of a Sampler, which was worked in coloured silks on linen with the image of a kneeling slave and a verse from the ‘Negro’s Prayer’. It was signed and dated ‘Martha Hague’s Work Decr 15 1837’.
