This happened in the village of Mały Płock on the sixth / eighteenth day of May in the year one-thousand eight-hundred fifty-seven at the hour of two in the afternoon.  There appeared Franciszek Gołaś, a peasant farmer residing in Borkowo, thirty-five years of age, in the presence of Ignacy Cudnik, thirty-three years of age, together with Roch Niedzwiecki, forty years of age, both farmers from Borkowo, and he showed Us a child of the male sex born in Borkowo yesterday at the hour of twelve at night of his wife Franciszka née Grędziszewska, thirty-four years of age.  To this child at Holy Baptism performed on this day was given the name Stanisław, and his Godparents were Mateusz Gołaś and Rozalia Cudnik.  This document was read aloud to the illiterate declarant father and witnesses.

[signed] The Reverend Franciszek Sakowicz, Head of the Parish of Mały Płock

The priest originally neglected to write out the word “day” in this record, so he added the missing information in the margin.  The marginal notation reads: “day, The R[everend] S[akowicz] testifying.”
