Hi there! Does the magical history of splendid old Samplers live in your heart, as in mine? Maybe this delightful 1900 archived article on Samplers from the NY Times has already *been around*, but I hadn't seen it 'til recently and wanted to share. Please have a good read and enjoy!
Thank you so much to all the dedicated people at the Times for their toils and troubles making these great articles available! Link is * here *, taking you to the article in pdf format.
