Inscription: in upper center: With / Sheba's queen / ye american fair / To ad / orn your mind / bend all your care; inscribed in lower center below: [How blest the maid] whom circling years improve / Her GOD the object of her warmest love / Whose useful hours successive as they glide / The Book the Needle and the Pen divide / Who sees her Parents Heart exult with joy / And the fond tear stand sparkling in their eye; at bottom: REBEKAH S MUNRO'S WORK
