Lettering

Ergo jacet, tremulum febris quatit arida pectus, nec morti faciunt irrita vota moram. Ecce sepulchralem deducit plurima pompam funebris est stygii proevia toeda rogi. Une fievre l'abat, la mort presse, il expire, on le conduit en pompe oú l'attendent les vers, et ce feu qui pour luy consume tant de cire n'est que l'avant-coureur de celuy des enfers.
