I am particularly drawn to the beautiful simplicity and sentiment of this sampler!
The text reads:
How pleasant it is at the end of the day
No follies to have to repent
But reflect on the past and be able to say
My time has been properly spent
Sarah Ann Noel. December 1836

There is a separate chart for the phrase and signature.
