Description: The document was found in with some of my father's papers - He was executor of the estate of Fritz Held, the youngest son of Carl Friedrich Phillipp "Fritz" Held.   The document is, I'm certain, Carl "Fritz" Held's permission to immigrate from Prussia.   It was initiated in Minden, Westfalen on 22 July 1856 and approved in Herford, Westfalen on 9 August 1856.  Fritz apparently requested to immigrate - many from this area of Germany did not do so & just left.
