The inscription on this mourning picture was copied from the notice of Daniel Goodman’s death that appeared in the Philadelphia newspapers. The sad figures may be meant to portray Mrs. Phoebe Goodman and her four surviving children. The embroiderer was probably one of Daniel’s sisters, perhaps the young lady who stands to the right of the monument.
