Amplissimi Magistratus
Humillimus Cliens
Leopoldus Stein
Judaus et quastor gremialis

Ad Amplissimum Magistratum Libere Regieque Civitatis Zomboriensis, Dominos Singulariter Colendissimos

Leopoldus Stein Judaus et questor gremialis Domum in Civitate hac habitionalem Jure perennali emendi et eandem taliter possidendi facultatem ductu intus attactorum motivorum sibi deservi supplicat.
The Exalted Magistrate, esteemed gentlemen!

My father, Francis Stein, has been selling bulk goods for more than 22 years and owns his own shop, as well as the right to live in this city. It is known how much income his home and trade brought to this kingdom every year and how much they still bring, and the same goes for my brothers Lazarus and Jacob Stein. The first of them also has its own home within this city community and its trade in its own shop has not contributed to this city for a long time. I, on the other hand, have had my shop within the city community for years and I have been of use to this city, as I am now, and I have always led an exemplary life, which is more than known to the respected Magistrate. Therefore, encouraged not only by the merits of my father and brothers, but also by my own, I ask the esteemed Magistrate to allow me the right to establish my own home in this city according to the eternal law, especially since my already mentioned father Franjo Stein already has such an eternal legal right. I, as his son, should enjoy the same legal rights as my father and therefore it is appropriate to grant me the right to reside within this urban community. With due respect, in Sombor, on December 15, 1811.
