God Speed the Plow
Suceess to the Grain Return.
In harmless mirth & fun
Let Friendship reign be just & Kind
And evil speak of none
Have communion with few
Be familiar with one
Deal justly with all
Speak evil of none.
Long may we live
Happy may we be
Blessed with content
and misfortunes free
Pretty girl and good opportunity
Creamware Child's Mug, 1820
A Present From a Friend
Made in England, mind you...
Success to the British Fleet
In others business which concerns not thee
For while thereon thou dost extend thy cares
Thou dost at home neglect thine own affairs
God save the King
Between the 1780s and 1820s British potteries capitalized on American patriotism by producing and exporting pieces that celebrated the new nation and its heroes.
When This you see Remember me
Tho' many miles We distant be
Be such as becomes the gospel of Christ
Let us therefore follow after the things which make for Peace.
Health to the Sick
Honour to the Brave
Success to the Lover
and Freedom to the Slave
Tho' I've learnt but one half of it yet.
The theft of my heart I can freely forgive.
But the thief I can never forget.
