This is a revision/tax list from Kuldiga (Goldingen) in Latvia from 1875, when Latvia was a German-speaking area of the Russian Empire. I am just interested in what the two lines say in the right-hand box -- they are handwritten in an old-style German script. It begins by saying "Moses Benjaminsohn, on 24 January 1873..." but I cannot read any of the following words. Moses was my great-grandfather. Thank you very much!!
