43 Mosaki Rukle  This happened in the village of Krasne on the tenth / twenty-second day of August in the year one-thousand eight-hundred forty-one at the hour of twelve noon. There appeared Józef Milewski, owner of a noble part [of the village], forty-two years of age and residing in the village of Mosaki Rukle, in the presence of Maciej Niedziałkowski, fifty years of age, and Bartłomiej Chiemiącki, thirty years of age, both owners of noble parts [of the village} and residing in the village of Mosaki Rukle, and he showed Us a child of the male sex born in the village of Mosaki Rukle on the day before yesterday at the hour of eight in the evening of his wife Teresa née Chodkowska, twenty-six years of age. To this child at Holy Baptism performed on this day was given the names Leopold Józef, and his Godparents were the Reverend Józef Bońkowski, pastor of Krasne, and Agnieszka Piotrowska. This document was read aloud to the declarants and witnesses and signed only by Us because the people mentioned in the document do not know how to write.
          [signed] The Reverend Józef Bońkowski, Pastor of Krasne

As seen in several other birth and baptismal records, although Józef Milewski was able to sign his name (as documented in the birth and baptismal record of his son Felix born in 1835, and in his own marriage record from 1835), the priest wrote that none of the declarants or witnesses knew how to write.

Leopold Józef Milewski was my 3rd cousin 3X removed.
