Let the wealthy & great
Roll in splendor & state
I envy them not I declare it:
I eat my own lamb.
My chickens and ham.
I shear my own fleece & I wear it.
I have lawns, I jhave bowrs.
I have fruits, I have flowrs.
The lark is my morning alarmers:
So jolly boys now.
Here's god speed the plough
Long life & succefs to the farmers

A lovely decorative folk art motto cider mug ready for a new home and use.
