If possible, the

translation are given below, plus any useful notes about the
translation or history of the writing.
A pure and upright man
R. Eleazer the son of R. Jacob the Cohen
Who departed on the 13th of Tamuz
In the Year 5678 (1918)
May his soul be bound in the bonds of life
of the Cohen used when blessing the people, the Shabbat,
Festivals, and High Holy Days
