To the Most-holy Governing Synod
From Platon, Archbishop of the Aleutian Islands and North America
Vladimir Sakovich, deacon of the Navy Cathedral at the Port of Emperor Alexander III, in Libava, is appointed by me to the position of priest in the city of Lopez, in the State of Pennsylvania.
After his ordination to the priesthood by John, the Archbishop of Riga, to whom I will send a request for this, he, Sakovich, will come to the Economy Department of the Most-holy Synod in order to receive travel money for his journey from St. Petersburg to New York, America, and I humbly ask you to issue this sum to him.
