of the Word of God in the Reformed
the bearer of (or person showing) this, Andrew Schreiber, citizen and
inhabitant of this place, and his wife, Anna Margareta, whom he has with
him, confess of themselves to be conformable to the Word of God, of the
Reformed Church, and have until now, assiduously observed the outward
duties of Christianity in attending our public worship, receiving the
Holy Sacrament, and otherwise, as far as is known, have been
irreproachable in their conduct, I attest. And whereas the said man and
wife and their children, after having borne adversities, are about to
turn their backs upon their country,
 and to go, (God
knows where), into a strange country, I would therefore recommend them
to a willing reception by the preachers and elders of the said Reformed
Church wherever they may show this. Alsenborn, Oberamt Lautern, in the
