This little framed piece is one of my favorite finds. The verse is written in pen and ink with lots of flourishes which I found interesting because of my love of calligraphy. I especially love the little watercolor painting of yellow roses. There was no identification of the artist but it has inspired me to make some small framed quotation pieces that are similar to this one.
The verse reads ...
The little sharp Vexations, and the Briars that catch and fret;
Why not take all to the Helper, who has Never failed us Yet.
