Ruda 280

This happened in the village of Mały Płock on the eighth / [twentieth day of December] in the year one-thousand eight-hundred fifty-seven at the hour of [one word?] in the afternoon.  There appeared Jan Kaczmarczyk, a peasant farmer residing in [Ruda], thirty-two years of age, in the [presence] of Jan Błędas, thirty-seven years of age, and Józef Kossakowski, thirty years of age, both peasant farmers in [Ruda?], and he showed Us a child of the female sex, born in Ruda yesterday at the hour of ten before noon of himself and his [wife] Małgorzata née Dymek, thirty-two years of age.  [To this child] at Holy Baptism on this day was given the name Ewa, and her Godparents [were the afore]-mentioned Jan Błędas and Anna Siwik.  [This] document was read aloud to the declarant father and the witnesses and was [signed only] by Us.  The father and witnesses do not know how to write.
[signed] The Reverend Franciszek Sakowicz, [Pastor of Mały Płock]

The page on which this record was written was damaged and the far right edge of the page is missing.  I completed the record with words I know should be there.  The only words I could not recreate were the hour when Jan Kaczmarczyk brought the child to the church and the place of residence of the witnesses (probably Ruda).
