This we all recommend to Your Majesty’s most sovereign discretion, and we remain most respectfully obedient.

Most Grand Most Sovereign Most Supreme

Hereditary King and Lord


Your Royal Majesty’s

Your Royal Majesty’s most undersigned and most dutiful

Servants and hereditary subjects

Rector and Professors

Piece. Men vi ville herudi saavidt undskyde Supplicanten, at han maa ikke til nøie kiende disse Piecer, vel mueligen og ikke heller en Deel af de andre omkring staaende Nummere, thi numeri 90 og 91 (som vi tilforn have excipent) ere, saa vit os ere vitterligt aldrig til paa Dansk, men vel paa Frantzøsk og Italiensk.

Dette vi altsammen indstiller til Eders Kongl. Majts. Egenvindre allernaadigste skiønsomhed, og forblive vi allerdybeste underdanighed.

Stormægtigste allernaadigste

Arvekonge og herre

Eders kongl. majts.

Allerunderdandt. og pligtskyldigste troe

Tienere og arve undesatter

Rector og Professorer


Dend 8 Decemb. 1721
