Re: [S-R] Latin Translation
- Dear Bill,
I've looked at the "text" you have submitted for several weeks. I thought I could help, but the data you have provided is too sketchy. There is something to be found based on what you have provided, but it requires the expertise of a Latin scholar. I am but a dilettante.

My old Latin is enough to get me started on a translation, but not good enough to make me confident. The note from the records follows, please be aware that my reading of the old script may not be perfect!
