Amplissimi Magistratus
Humillimus cliens
Jacobus Stein Judaus gremialis

Ad Amplissimum Magistratum Libere Regieque Civitatis Zomboriensis Dominos singulariter colendissimos.

Jacobus Stein Judaus gremialis fornicem mercantilem in gremio Civitatis hujus erigendi facultatem sibi ductu motivorum intus denotatorum gratiose concedi humillime suplicat.
Exalted Magistrate, esteemed gentlemen!

It is well known to the supreme Magistrate that my father, Franz Stein (Franciscus Stein), has had a bulk store for 22 years, and he has a perpetual right and permission to have a home in this city. It is also well known that his home paid taxes to this kingdom every year and that it was always useful to it, and this is no less true for my brothers Lazar (Lazarus) and Leopold (Lleopoldus) Stein, who have one shop in this place with the ordinary goods, and another with bulk store - and they have only benefited this city community for many years. I recently married the widow of the late Philip Hajduska (Philippus Hajduska), who also had the right to own a home in this city as well as trade, and therefore it follows that I inherited the right of my father, my brothers, and also the right of the late husband of my current wife, Philip Hajduska, I have the legal right to open a store in this city. Guided by these motives, I earnestly beg the exalted Magistrate to allow me to open a shop in this city community and sell goods in it, which are popularly called wrought goods, and it is generally known to the public that I have always led a quiet life and governed myself in accordance with good customs. Therefore, I believe that since the number of traders in the city increases only in the case of those who have tried their hand at this business, that such a procedure will only be of material benefit to the city community and in accordance with laws restricting trade exclusively to real traders. With due respect and appreciation, in Sombor, on February 5, 1811.
