Josephus Josephi Alston, Armigeri
maxime spei juvenis
qui cum in Academia Cantabrigiensi
per aliquot annos optimis studiis
ingenium natura felix excoluerat
exteris regionibus lustrandis
triennium integrum insumpsit
ardorque animi expleri nescius
per omnia visu digna studio indefesso rapuit
nihil sibi aut valetudini suoe interea parcenteus
dum in eo totus erat ut vitam cum laude inceptam
ex omni parti ornatissimum redderet
quo factum ut idem fere peregrinationum
ac vitoe finis esset
nimis enim laboribus consecutus in pthisim incidit
qua ingraves cente
paucos post menses quam in patriam redierat
summo suorum delore e vivis eraptu est
IX Decns. Anno. Aetatis XXVII Domini MDCCXXXIII

Joseph Joseph Alston, esquires,
especially young hopeful
Though he was in Cambridge
For several years, the best studies
ability naturally happy kinde
foreign countries examined
three devoted a whole
subsided mind made up unintentionally
indefatigable caught sight worthy of study by all
nothing either to the health of his time spare
was begun in the praise of the whole own life, when, in the
from every part accomplished pay
The result was almost the same as touring
and the end to avoid
much of the work achieved in the spitting incident (phthisis T.B.)
which got worse cente
had returned a few months later, and in the country,
Delos is the sum of living eraptu?
