Transcription

The Rich Man and Lazarus.

There was a man in ancient times,
the Scriptures doth inform us whose pomp and grandeur and whose crimes were great and very numerous.
He ate & drank but scorned to pray & spent his days in sinning
This rich man fared sumtuously each day & was dressed in purple fine linen
