Elementarie - Seasoneth Young Minds

Ettibi fortassis vel sponte pepercerit, utqui

Dum te errare videt, se quoque posse videt.

Una meos multum solatur causa labores,

Quos sibi devotos Anglia nostra videt.

Cura migi commune bonum, miserebitur omnis,

Si quis sperai faenoris error erit:

Perge liber, fratremque tuum comitare, minores

In procinctu alijiam meditanturiter. R.M.
