Si accuratiori mente revolvam, quod per viginti et ultra annorum jam decursum hic loci cum Lana, et diversi generis pellibus quastum exercendo, et tam ab hoc, quam a habitationali quam Jure perennali possideo, Domo obvenire notabile quantum Contributionale quotannis accurate dependendo Peculio huicce Regio utilis semper et fuerim et actu sim quod…. Ad notorietatem Magistratualembonas omni tempore prosetulerim mores, pacificamque gesserim vitam, non possum non presummere eam Amplissimi Magistratus gratiam presentibus exorare, ut mihi in gremio Civitatis hujus fornicem mercantilem erigendi, et in hoc merces vulgo Scheidt:Waar.

Amplissimi Magistratus
Humillimus cliens
Laurencius Herczeg
Judaus et quastor gremialis

Ad Amplissimum Magistratum Libere Regie Civitatis Zomboriensis Dominos singulariter colendissimos.
Laurencius Herczeg Judaus et questor gremialis in gremio Civitatis hujus Fornicem mercantilem erigendi facultatem sibi ductu motivorum initus denotatorum gratiose concedi demisse supplicat.
If my memory serves me well, I have been trading in wool and various types of leather in this place for more than 20 years, I have the right to live and own a home here, and it is also known how much I have always paid and remained useful to this kingdom. The Magistrate also knows very well that I have always led an exemplary and peaceful life, so it is quite appropriate to send a request to the exalted Magistrate to allow me to set up a trade shop in which I would sell goods that are popularly called wrought goods. All the more I trust that the exalted Magistrate will generously answer my request, because it is always useful for the city community to get another skilled trader, regardless of the fact that their number is legally limited and certainly such permits should be issued only to those who trade successfully and truly, because it only seems to be a common good. With due respect and always at your service, I hope for a positive response from the sublime Magistrate. In Sombor on January 10, 1811.

Humble servant
Of the exalted Magistrate
Lorentz Herczeg (Laurencius Herczeg)
