About artist/note:

Verse:
A silent and loving Woman is a gift of the Lord, and there is nothing so much worth as a mind well instructed.

As the Sun when it arisith in the high Heaven; so is the beauty of a good Wife in the ordering of he House.

A Woman that honoureth her Husband shall be judged wise of all.

-Ecclus.26.Ch.V.14.16.26
