Our Lucy Bugg PRINTED sampler looks so genuine that it is difficult to tell it is actually printed and not the real thing. The proverb recorded on the sampler, complete with misspelled words and backward letters, as is appropriate for a young girl just learning to sew and read, states:
"It is in virtue that alone can give
the fleeting honour and bid glory live.
On virtue’s basis only, fame can rise
to stand the storm of age and reach the skies."
