I, Louis, King of France, hereby decree as follows :
Having Sieur Jean Orliac in high esteem, I grant him, in his capacity as a Merchant, from this day onward and for the duration of full three years, the entire freedom to conduct his affairs as he deems.
Officers, constables and bailiffs, are henceforth under the obligation not to proceed to any arrest of said Sieur Orliac, nor to cause him any kind of hindrance.
Thus it is understood that Sieur Jean Orliac may not be taken into custody, nor be sentenced to imprisonment.
As a consequence, anyone concerned by this decree who contravene these my royal orders will instantly be deprived of his rank and powers and likewise be dismissed of his duties.
If, nevertheless, Sieur Jean Orliac happens to be incarcerated, it is hereby ordered to set free said Sieur Jean Orliac forthwith.
