Summary:
Poem of 18 lines, in rhymed couplets, that seems to make fun of a local official (Schulteis), referred to as Junckher Schadenfro, who is suspected of being a thief and had to pay a fine (Diebschilling) to Grauen (Old or Count?) Henrich. The poem makes reference to itself as a letter (brieflein) for the edification of the official, and also as a pasquil (Pasquill), i.e. lampoon for circulation. A handwritten label on the reverse, with the heading Copia schedula (perhaps indicating that this is a copy), implies that the poem was written by Henrich Moritz, a local constable (Stattknecht), and his associate or assistant Johann Cyriaxen, at noon on Thursday 30 September 1596, in Buding (?), and that the original is in the office (Cantzleij) of Grauen Henrich.
