Decree to the commander vizier× of Nissa (Niš)× and to the judges, aides-de-camp of janissary commanders, janissary commanders, provincial notables, and functionaries situated on the road from my threshold of felicity× to Nissa (Niš)× and the Austrian× border:

General [Damian Hugo] Count of Virmont× —may God end his days propitiously—who came as grand ambassador from the Roman emperor× to my gate that is the center of state, sent a sealed petition to my threshold of felicity and requested my imperial decree [on the following matter]:

When one of the notables that came [earlier] along with the aforesaid ambassador× [to Istanbul], named Baron Sebec× (Karl Ludwig, Freiherr von Seebach), and four of his protected servants, arrive and enter the administrative territory and town of whomever among you, no one shall interfere with and attack his garment or the garment of his servants. [Likewise, no one shall interfere with and attack] their flock of animals at stations and stages of the journey. No one shall be allowed to injure them demanding money under the name of tribute or under other pretexts in violation of the imperial letter of agreement (ʿahdnāme-i ḥumāyūn). Each of you shall send and deliver them safe and sound from one of you to the other. Each of you shall pay attention and take great care. My illustrious edict has been issued for all of you to act in the described way.

October 15 to October 24, 1719
