@oristarA,
Perhaps the first line is...
"On the sixth day...."

That's all I can read other then "of" on the second line and "are" on the third and maybe "have for a..." written for the final line.

@tsarstepan,
Thank you.

I believe it was written by the cranky looking old Chinese master.

@tsarstepan,
I think there something about "wise men are coming" on the 3rd line

Obviously not related:

The original Chinese:

南湖段友勝到此
廿二年四月十五日

The equivalent in English:

Duan Yousheng from South Lake came here

April fifteenth of twenty second year (of the Republic of China?).

I think there may be a relationship of some sort. I think the final line is "coming here from" or "coming here for"

Using 'recognise' in this situation sounds a little odd, Ori. As you have worded it, it sounds like you meant,

Can you recognise the handwriting [as being that of a particular person]?

I think you meant the following;

Can you recognise the handwriting as English?

@JTT,
I thought he meant 'Can you read the English writing?'

I would assume the person who wrote it doesn't have perfect English. I can see

At the sixth day
of 11th of dr. H.
wise man are com(ing)
here for a travelling ...


I'm guessing that it's announcing a visit from a wise doctor on the 6th November (or 11th year and we can't see the month) for a travelling clinic/workshop/lecture ...or something like that.

Great photo!
