The edict in praise of the famous Chinese scholar and poet Zhao Zhongyuan 趙中元 (1702-1750) and his parents, is written in both Chinese and Manchu script (derived from cursive Mongolian). For a full description and translation of the scroll see my Blogspot post http://hughrance.blogspot.ie/2016/01/a-qing-dynasty-edict-from-emperor.html The scroll may be the original of a later edict issued by the Jiaqing Emperor in the collection of Yunju Temple near Beijing. 

There are two large faded seal imprints in the centre of the scroll with the date written over them in Chinese and Manchu which read 'Yang Ping Zhi Du Gong Yin' 阳平治都功印. The seal was first created in the Eastern Han Dynasty by Zhao Daoling, regarded as the founder of Wudoumi Daoism and honored as 'Celestial Master Zhang'. At the ends are white woodblock stamps with double dragons with Chinese seal script characters and Manchu script between the dragons. An enhanced photo of the seal and a black and white photo of the woodblock stamps are shown. The scroll is 150cm long and 30cm wide and written on finely woven imperial yellow silk with a paper lining behind. My thanks to Andrew West for his help with transcribing the Chinese characters, in translation and for finding the reference to the Yunju Temple scroll.
