(Printed in standard German Gothic type; also called Fraktur type. )
----------
[Viewers' Note: A possible problem. Fr is the standard German
abbreviation for married woman ie Mrs.; however in Latin it
can also stand for brother (frater).  It's questionable the president
of the church council was a woman, in 1896.
Keep that in mind.]
