|Amplissime Magistratus, domini nobis singulariter Colendissimi!
Erga humillimum eatenus factum recursum nostrum dignabatur Amplissimus Magistratus pro cemeterio nobis localitatem exassiguare pro quo gratioso favore humillimus quidem agimus gratias cum tamen tum altiores excelsi Consilii Regni Ordines, cum ritus nostril id exposcant ut in cemeterio nostro Reclinatorium, seu camera mortuorum, in qua cadaver eo usque asservatur, donec omnes cerimonia funebrales peracta non fuerint, erigatur: hanc proinde in cemeterio nostro erigendi indultum nobis gratiose concede supplicamus: omni cum venerationis cultu perseverantes. Zomborini die 12a Julii 1808.

|The Exalted Magistrate and our esteemed gentlemen!
The Exalted Magistrate honored us, at our repeated humble request, to designate a site for our cemetery, and we humbly thank him for this generous favor, as well as the higher provisions of the Exalted Royal Council. Since our religious customs dictate a reclinator or chapel erected at our cemetery in which the deceased would be kept until all funeral rites are finished, therefore, persevering in piety and faith, we ask that you generously grant us a building permit. In Sombor, on July 12th, 1808.
