Jacobus Stein
Judaus et quastor gremialis

Ad Amplissimum Magistratum Libere Regieque Civitatis Zomboriensis, Dominos Singulariter Colendissimos
Jacobus Stein Judaus et questor gremialis Domum in Civitate hac habitionalem Jure perennali emendi et eandem taliter possidendi facultatem ductu intus denotatorum motivorum sibi deservi supplicat.
Exalted Magistrate, esteemed gentlemen!

My father, Francis Stein, has had a bulk store here for more than 20 years, and by eternal law a home in this city, and it is generally known what benefits and contributions it has always been to our kingdom, as it is now. My brothers Lazar and Leopold Stein, the first of whom also has his own home in this city, both have shops and have been of no less benefit to the city community for years. I also have a shop in this city and I have always been useful to the kingdom, as I am now, and I have also behaved nicely and exemplary, leading a always peaceful life. I recently married the widow of the late Philipp Hajduška, who also by law had the right to live and trade in his own shop. It follows that it is quite founded that I, by the inheritance right of my father and brothers, and also because of my own merits, earnestly ask the exalted Magistrate to allow me to buy a house for myself in this city community. Since my already mentioned father, Francis Stein, has the right of permanent residence in this city, it is natural for me to enjoy the same privilege in accordance with the law, and I hope that this request will be generously granted. With due respect and appreciation, in Sombor, on December 15, 1811.
