Here is the translation,
羅浮僊子飲流霞醉
倒孤山處士家幾度東
風吹不醒至今顔色以梅花

The immortal of Luofu drunk the fairy drink of evening glow
Got drunken and fell asleep in a lonely mountain house
No matter how often the East wind blew, he did not wake up
So far, his face was plum colored

琨寳七兄大人 原意
Kunbao Seven Broders, Original Idea
壬辰冬月 Year of Water-Dragon 1832
Winter Month
伍學藻  Wu Xuezao

The inscription is based on an old story from
the Sui Dynaty about an inmortal who was seduced by the spirit of plum blossom in Luofu
(current Guandong)

With regards,
I.Nagy

Thanx again I Nagy! I very much appreciate the info! So what year was this particular scroll done? David.

Dear David,

The dating of scroll is clearly 1832.
However, according to the scarce biographical data
he was only 11 years old in 1832.
He might have been very talented, or his birth
year is not correctly given in the biographies.

With regards,
I.Nagy
