English translation of a handwritten entry in Matic"ne Knjige
Below is an example taken from Gruda R-6 (1872-1886) DAD. Gruda is a town in Konavle, a region southeast of Dubrovnik. R-6 means it's the 6th Rodjenih (birth) book. DAD are the initials for the Dubrovnik State Archives where the book resides.
