Hi Guys.

The first paragraph of this document is in Latin, while the latter half is in English: http://imgur.com/aAYwQMT

Anyone able to translate any of it into English?

@Walter Hinteler,
Looking at the page source, I see you posted something from tinypic.
Unfortunately, we have filters here that block most file-sharing sites, so all
I see is a blank space.

@George,
Sorry - I only wanted to get you working Wink

(It's from 1701, but written in a handwriting, which I unfortunately can't really decipher.)

@Walter Hinteler,
I appreciate it, Walter.

Handwritten script can be brutal. Many words are abbreviated or
embellished and some letters change form depending on whether they are
in the middle or at the end of a word.

I'd be embarrassed to tell you how long it took me to figure out that this
Kindle screensaver is the opening of the Gospel according to John.

@George,
Additionally, some scripts are written really in "dog Latin".

I'm at a loss to read that script, let alone translate it.

All I can get out of it is at the end where it says he sealed it with his seal on
the 14th day of March in the year of the Lord 1701.
