. . . Fiscal Tienhoven.

Thomas Gredy declares that he did not find his calves as he had marked them. He declares that his mark was a split about halfway down on the left ear, and he found that the ears of his calves had been cut away as far as the split. Jan Gray, having been questioned whether he knew who cut the ears off the calves, answered that he had no knowledge of it and asked for justice. Fiscal Tienhoven is ordered to summon here two persons named Jan Scheldinge and Lucas Watsen, living in Jan Gray's house, in order to acquire more detailed information in the matter.
