First, here is the correct reading of the title,
縛解珠圓 Fujie Zhuyua, Binding and untying round pearls
壬寅初夏 Year of Water-Tiger （1662）
蘇庵老人 Suan laoren, Old man of the perilla hut
方拱幹 書 Fang Gonggan shu (Painted by)
(Seal is illegible -out of focus, supposedly
Fan Gpnggan is one the art-names used by Fang
Gongqian 方拱乾 1591-1666 late Ming early Qing
period official, poet and painter.
His other art-name was Suan laoren 蘇庵老人.
During his life-span there were only two Water-Tiger years (1602 and 1662) - so the only possible year of dating is 1662.
I think the story on the scroll is about Mariti,the onetime devourer and then protector
