Generoso et Egregio D[omi]no Francisco Papai testimonium hoc
perhibet animi sui ipsum honorantis
Johannes White A[rtium] M[agister] ex Aede Christi

* 3Jn 1:5: Vulgate: “fideliter facis quicquid
operaris in fratres et hoc in peregrinos”. Also quoted by the
Archbishop of York William VII. Dawes on p.
Thou doest faithfully whatsoever thou doest to the brethren, and
to strangers. 3Jn 1:5. *
I wrote this
to the noble and eminent Mr. Ferenc Pápai as a token of the
reverence of my soul towards him.
John White M.A. of
Christ Church in
Oxford, the youngest procurator,
461. Oxford, 1716
His note is dated in 1716 in Oxford, and according to this he was
magister and procurator of Christ Church. He is
probably identical with (1) that “John White, Anglus, 22, Juris
studiosus”, who immatriculated on September 7, 1719 at the faculty
of law in Leiden. – He can be eventually also identical with (2)
the pastor John White (died around 1760), or (3) a certain John
White, fellow of St John's College in Cambridge who has many
works in the catalogue of the British
Museum. Perhaps further investigation will decide which person out
of the three wrote in the album of Pápai Páriz.
