A vorshrift was a writing exercise, common within Pennsylvania-German communities, that typically included an ornate introductory letter, a selection of Bible text and/or poetry, and examples of the alphabet. They were often presented as gifts; this one is dedicated to “Joseph Hofman” and is notable for the portrait of George Washington rendered at the bottom.
