There appeared also the bride, Sara Mowszowna, being 17 years old, according to the birth certificate, made in Seyny district and confirmed there on 22 August 1825. The witness, Ilko Jankielowicz, 57 years old and Todrys .Berkowicz, 54 years old, both residents of the town of Seyny declared that Sara Mowszowna, who is going to marry, was born in the town of Przersol, of the father Mowszy Raczkowski and the mother Bella who are still living.

No obstacle was found to contracting of the marriage and both families were agreed, so after reading the all the above mentioned papers, we asked the future spouses if they wish to marry and both answered separately, that it was their wish.

Thus in the name of the law, we announce that Hirza Leybowicz  and Sara Mowszowna are married. Then we wrote this act in the presence of the witnesses and they signed it.
