Vita nostra peregrinatio est;
Diversorium Mundus, Coelum Patria est.
Ut ergo facilior sit nobis ex illo in hoc transitus
relictis impedimentis, contenti paucis, eò anhelemus.
Clariss[imo] D[omi]no Fr[ancisco] P[ariz] Papai in amicitiae
infucatae tesseram, & gratam exacti in ipsius consortio cum
jucunditate maxima, in Anglia temporis, memoriam, cum voto
omnigenae felicitatis, pauca haec abituriens adscripsit Joh[annes]
Symb[olum]. In Fide Salus!
Londini d. 11. Novembr. 1718.
Our life is peregrination; our hostelry the earth; our homeland
the heaven. Thus, in order our transition from here to there might
be as easy as possible, let us leave behind the burdens that
hinder us, and satisfied with few, let us aspire to there.
With this trifle I recommend myself into the
memory of the eminent Mr. Ferenc Pápai Páriz, as a token of my
sincere friendship, and a sign of gratitude for the pleasant time
spent in his company in England, wishing him all the best: Johann Friedrich

Scholtz, Johann Friedrich
He wrote in the album in November of 1718 in London. We do not
know any more about him, but he might be identical with (1)
Scholtz, Johann Friedrich (active 1753-1770), philosopher, private
professor in Helmstedt; although there is a rather long distance
of time between the note in the album and his period of activity. – (2)
Another Scholtz, Johann Friedrich (active c. 1731), was pastor in
Stendal, then in the castle of Cottbus; perhaps identical with the
same person of whom we only know that he was active in 1696. Apart
from some funeral sermons, his dissertation defended in Frankfurt
an der Oder was also published: Dissertatio theologica de angelis bonis et
malis: praeside Barthold Holtzfus … submittit Johannes
Fridericus Scholtz. Francofurti ad Viadrum, 1713.
