A proclamation

Upon the most holy Feast of the Epiphany , His grace Duke Karl Frederick , confers the vacancy of the Tradgardland Regiment upon the highly promising Maj. Andreas Trimbach. He is expected to present himself in full uniform at the Ducal Palace at his earliest convenience, accompanied by the aforementioned coin.
God Save the Duke!
6th January 1759

Col. Trimbach will be departing for Tradgardland as soon as possible after the Octave of Epiphany and the nuptials of the Prinzessin Sophie-Vittoria--a major state function at which Col. Trimbach is to serve as Captain of the Prinzessin's honour guard.

The address of his billet in Tradgardland may be sent via Herzog Ignaz's privy secretary at paulvanolson#hotmail?com by replacing the hash and interrogation with an "@" and point, respectively.

Payment for the commission will be made, with the indulgence of the Tradgardlander exchequer, by bill of exchange to be drawn on Herzog Ignaz's privy account with the Rottendam branch of the banking house of Tellson et Cie.
