I have a sampler (not for sale) that my mother bought at an unknown time and place. It contains the following text:
Thomas Ketley was born August the 27 1782
Ann Ketley was born December the 30 1783
Joseph Ketley was born November the 13 1785
?Edweard [sic] Ketley was born September the 10 1787
Jane Ketley ws born October the 24 1789.

The Strange Vicissitudes of Human Fate
Still Altering Never in a Steady State
Good After Ill and After Pain Delight
Alternate like the St[..]nes of Day and Night
Since Ev'ry one who Lives is Born to Die
And None Can Boast Sincere Felicity
With Equal Minds What Happens let us Bear
Nor Joy nor Grief too Much Beyond our Care
Liek Pilgrims to th' appointed Place we went
TheWords an Pain and Death the Journey's end
Ann Ketley Her Work In the Year Of Our LORD 1794
