Description:

"A Friend" created this calligraphic acrostic for Miss Mary Esther Mallory in July, 1824. Indited on wove paper, the poem is enclosed in a vine border with other delicate embellishments; the top quarter of the verso is bordered and embellished to present a calligraphic address inscription. The first verse reads: May you delight to serve the Lord And his commands and precepts keep; Remember that for every word You must account for what you speak. In her adult life Mary (1804?57) married Algernon Edwin Beard, a manufacturer, and they had a son Augustus Field Beard (1833?1934), who became an important educator and was actively involved with the black colleges of the South, serving as a trustee of several. Small 8vo (20 x 15.5 cm; 7.75" x 6"). 2 pp. Age-toning of paper, some small spots of browning; short fold tears; two old tape repairs to short fold tears from verso. => Very good, very charming.
