CONT To this seemly request to William Fisher we had to accede the more readily the better we have assured ourselves by authenticated reports that William Fisher has heretofore conducted himself to his Excellency, the Count, his counsellors, officials, and toward each and every one, that we can give to all good testimony in his behalf. CONT His Excellency and we his chancellor decree that William Fisher owes us no allegiance, and permit to him to leave the county of Isenberg and to settle wherever he may desire. CONT We therefore request all high and low, according to their stations and dignity, obediently, submissively and subserviently and kindly, ont only to give implicit belief to our testimony, that the above named William Fisher, who comes from a place free from all infectious disease, be permitted ot go free and unmolested by whomsoever met, and his long journey to give him all assistance an dpreferment, which we shall ever be ready to reciprocate whenever the opportunity shall offer."
