Exalted City Magistrate, dear gentlemen!

Due to efforts my father, the late Philip Hajduska, a member of the Jewish community and trade association, the right to trade was transferred to his widow and my esteemed mother after his death, to enjoy it on behalf of the deceased. Since my aforementioned mother is now engaged to Jacob Stein, and the two of them are not able to transfer the said inheritance without the approval of the Magistrate, and my father has no doubt indebted this Kingdom with his work and acquired property, and I am married and living a virtuous life, therefore I earnestly ask the exalted Magistrate to generously grant me the right to engage in trade. If my younger brother Simon Hajduska asks for the same right, he can follow me in it after he gets married. Simon Hajduska does not have a permanent place of residence here, but intends to live in Senta, and I am the father of three children who I am not able to support other than by trade in which I am trained. With great respect in every sense, in Sombor, on December 18, 1809.

A humble servant of the exalted Magistrate, Abraham Hajduska, a member of the Jewish community

It was decided to consult with the members of the Association of Traders as well as with the respected widowed mother and then to give an answer and make it public. In the Sombor Senate, on December 20, 1809.
Emeric (surname illegible), city deputy notary

To the respected Magistrate of the free royal city of Sombor, esteemed gentlemen
