The rural municipality mayor admonishes the people of the rural municipality to pay taxes more diligently and not to evade military service and duty to the state, to turn in anyone returning home from service without authorization and, during requisitioning, to be honest and loyal to the state in declaring their possessions. The rural municipality mayor sees signs of danger in anxious moods and lukewarm loyalties, and he expresses fear about a repeat of the 1905 revolutionary events.

If the reminder is not enough, the mayor vows that he will notify higher authorities of any unrest.
