No 13  [Mosaki]-Rukle and Łyszkowo
This happened in Krasne on the fourteenth / twenty sixth day of July in the year one-thousand eight-hundred fifty-seven at the hour of five in the afternoon. We make it known that in the presence of witnesses Felicjan Mieszkowski, twenty five years of age, and Felix Milewski, twenty-two years of age, part owners {of the village] residing in [Mosaki]-Rukle, a religious marriage was contracted today between Kacper Chodkowski, a widower after the death of his wife Marianna on the twenty-seventh of May of this same year, born and residing in [Mosaki]-Rukle on inherited land of the deceased Jan and Marianna née Obidzińska Chodkowski, having completed twenty-one years of age, on the one side, and the young woman Alexandra Milewska, born in Łyszkowo and residing with her mother, [daughter] of the married couple, the deceased Bartłomiej and the still-living Ewa Milewski, having completed twenty years of age, on the second side. This wedding was preceded by three readings of the banns on the twenty-third / thirtieth of June, the fifth / twelfth day of July, and the seventh / nineteenth day of July of this same year in the parish of Krasne. No impediment to the marriage arose, as well as by the oral consent of the mother of the newlywed woman present for this record of marriage. The newlyweds stated that a premarital agreement had been made by Felix Cybulski, Notary of the Przasnysz Powiat on the second / fourteenth day of July of this same year. This document was read aloud to the declarants of both sides and witnesses who stated that they do not know how to write, and was signed by Us.
     [signed] The Reverend Idzi Godlewski, Pastor of the Parish of Krasne, maintaining the records of the civil state

Kacper Chodkowski was my 2nd cousin, 4X removed.

The dates of the banns in this record were written in a very confusing manner. However, the use of a calendar for the year 1857 makes clear that the Julian dates were 23 Jun, 30 Jun, and 07 Jul, and the corresponding Gregorian dates were 05 Jul, 12 Jul, and 19 July.
