MANUSCRIPT FUNERAL SERMON In Memory of Ann Wolfe a Sincere Christian. She was born May 14th in the year of our Lord 1794 and died Feby. 19th 1815 Aged 21.
Manuscript in 4to note-book, original wraps with illustration of paper-making 'Published by P. Rose, Bristol', wraps grubby. Neatly written over 22p., (filling the book). Verse from Isiah 60 at the head. Hand-painted frontispiece, covering the whole of the first page, in grey, yellow, black and orange, showing a decorative memorial tablet, with crown, face, heart, urns etc., and inscription as above, with poem 'I did just step one foot upon the stage/To view the world and the deplored age/My dear Redeemer thought it best for me/To leave this world a better one to see'.
¶ The theme is the mortality and mutability of human kind contrasted with the unchanging nature of Christ 'What number in their youthful days are worn down with sickness and disease... in the gay hours of youth they are seized with a small tickling cough... we do now perceive that it is a slow lingering consumption'...'. Ann Wolfe 'our departed sister' is said to have 'met death as an angel sent to release her from sin and sorrow... I seem to hear her with the same affectionate concern which she express'd for youth in her affliction, calling now to you from heaven and saying 'Would you be happy, be religious...' The Staffordshire Burial Records show an Ann Wolfe who died 1814, aged 21, and was born 1794. Her burial date is given as 24th February 1815. The Wolfe family were pottery manufacturers in Stoke.
Watercolour, in sepia, white and pencil on card, size approx. 6" x 8", corners snipped. Titled in pencil, and signed, in ink, to verso.
