"This is to certify that the carpenter journeyman Friedrich Hintz born in Stallupoehnen, worked for me from 18 July 1841 until 17 January 1842 and during that time he was honest, diligent and decent.

          Koenigsberg, 27 January 1842

"This is to certify that Mr. Schielies is known to us as a reputable independent carpenter.

          Koenigsberg, 27 January 1842

          L. Wallmann,  Head of Carpenters' Guild"
