can anyone decipher the general gist of what this is?
Not without a much-less-pixellated image, I'm afraid.
a rather poor image but at the moment all I have.
Hello @Dennis J Yancey,
What a fascinating memory! Here is something I tried to understand what is in it. You can search for Latin to English translation in Google and you will come to a page where you can enter the Latin word and it will show you the English word.
I looked up the first word, "Imnomine", and it means "undefiled".
It's a little tedious, but that is the best suggestion I have. Maybe others would have a better idea.
There are other ideas in this article from the Help Center:
On closer scrutiny, I'm not even sure this is actually Latin: some of it looks more like Italian. It starts with the word Anno, which is "year" in either of those languages. I think it writes out the year 1748, but a lot of that may be wishful thinking around the pixel-boxes.
