[The pastor at Steffisburg was Freudenreich. I am a little confused because the witness certainly is Freudenberger and I am also seeing the word "Predicant" which is the word I could expect to see used to describe a pastor.  The word coming after zu might be an abbreviation for Steffisburg. However, I am certain Baecher knows what he is talking about, so I will assume this man was a pastor somewhere else.- Bruce W. Stahly]
