All that is prescribed, we not only choose to accept for ourselves as an inviolable constitution, but we also command and enjoin in Grace that all those who are bound to Us and Our Successors, as well as to the Realm, with loyalty, obedience, and submission, shall acknowledge, observe, follow, and obey this Freedom of the Press Ordinance. To make this certain, We have signed and confirmed it with Our Own Hand, and have caused Our Royal Seal to be duly appended below, done in Our Residence City of Stockholm on the ninth day of March in the year after the Birth of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ eighteen hundred and ten.


[Signature of King Carl XIII]

Til yttermera wisso hafwe Wi detta med Egen Hand underskrifwit och bekräftat, samt Wårt Kongl. Insegel låtit weterligen hänga här nedanföre, som skedde i Wår Residence-Stad Stockholm den nionde dagen i Martii  månad Året efter Wår Herres och Frelsares Jesu Christi Börd det Ettusende Åttahundrade och på det Tionde.
