It reads "The Akathist for the Dormition of the Theotokos." The image on the other page seems to match it.
This should be the object of a ruler's care;
His subjects' burden he should manfully bear.
He should not despise them or treat them like dogs
But love them as a father his children loves.

Its an Akathist...

published by the Kiev Lavra


and that's where my Slavonic deciphering skills end...


Based on the picture, its to the Theotokos....

To be more precise, the title is "The Akathist for the Dormition of the All-Holy Theotokos." I was in a hurry earlier, so my apologies.

I've never been very good at reading Slavonic numerals but I do believe it was printed in 1863 by the Kiev Pechersk Lavra.
