Manuscript poem, 17th century

Manuscript poem, 17th century

Folded sheet of paper with a Latin poem which begins: 'As soon as Charles left his native shores, every angel was filled with tears'. The poem almost certainly refers to the sudden departure in 1623 of the future King Charles I and is apparently unpublished.
