I Aluis Meyer, make the following report of myself, to the County court of Henrico in the State of Virginia, that is to say.

That I was born in the Republic of Switzerland on the 22 day of June 1807, being now in the 35 years of my age, that I am a subject of the Governor of that Country owing allegiance to that Republic, and to none other. That I migrated to the United States in 1836 and that I intend to settle myself in Richmond, Virginia, U.S. Given unto my hand this 5 day of July 1842.
