It happened in the village of Zaremby on the nineteenth of January, eighteen hundred thirty four at eight o’clock in the morning.  The Jew Leybka Kamien, age fifty three, synagogue sexton, and Jankiel Wulfowicz Augustower, a dyer, age forty, both of whom are residing in the village of Zaremby, appeared and testified that on the seventeenth of the current month at eight o’clock in the morning died Sosia, almost two years old, daughter of Herszko and Szeyna married couple Tachna, residing in the village of Zaremby and earning their living from the writing of G-d’s Commandments [Torah Scribe].  After having convinced ourselves with our own eyes of the death of Sosia, this document was read to the witnesses, who live in the neighborhood of the deceased.  The witnesses cannot write.
