Woodward, Mary, 1794- (Embroiderer)
""When thou seest the naked wanderer of the/street shivering with cold and destitute/ of habitation let bounty open thine hart let/ the wings of charity shelter him from death/ That thine own soul may live be virtuous/In thy youth so shall thine age be honored."" ""Mary Woodward her Work/Aged 11 years 1805""
