Amplissimi Magistratus
Humillimus ac servorum infimus servus
Ignatius Fischer Judaus
Sine rationis hic loci tracteur arendator

Ad Amplissimum Magistratum Libere ac Regie Civitatis Zombor, Dominos singulariter Colendissimos.

Ignatius Fischer Judaus huiatis Judaici tracteur arendator, se ab ulteriori fati civici tracteur beneficii arenda e rationibus intus humillime adductus relevandum Excelse Camere Regie Hungarico-Aulice gratiose proponi humillime instat.
Exalted Magistrate, respected gentlemen!

When the time came to pay the city treasury 98 florins of conventional currency, and to extend the lease agreement for the Jewish inn for the next three years, and when the lease agreement had to be signed, so that I could support myself and my family, since the issue of renting a Jewish inn was publicly declared before the guild of city merchants in February this year, I have to state the following: since Christians do not visit the Jewish inn, and Jews have completely stopped visiting it due to their poverty , in practice, this means that the privilege of a Jewish inn no longer brings me any income, so there is no point in continuing to pay the rent. Further payment of the rent would mean a complete financial ruin for me, who, apart from the mentioned privilege, had no property, and I am burdened with supporting my family. Therefore, the city treasury regarding the said privilege, regardless of the fact that it happened on my responsibility, but for the mentioned reasons and circumstances, should have no legal, political or economic reason to impose rent payments on me in the future, especially since it is not allowed to any third party in this case compensates for the loss and damage. Therefore, I humbly ask the Supreme Magistrate to release me from the obligation to pay rent in the future with his generous decision, and on the basis of the positive opinion of the Supreme Royal Court Chamber of Hungary. With due respect and service, in Sombor, March 26, 1829.

The humblest servant of all servants
Of the Exalted Magistrate
Ignatius Fischer (Ignjat Fischer), a Jew The tenant of the inn with no further basis to keep it

To the Exalted Magistrate of the free royal city of Sombor,
esteemed gentleman Ignatius Fischer, a Jew, a tenant of a Jewish inn, for the above reasons begs the Exalted Royal Court Chamber of Hungary to relieve him of further obligations to pay rent for a Jewish inn
