The document was certified by the Hardesvogt , two sandmen and eight other witnesses .

In the compilation of Jutian law Das Jütsche Low , which was translated into German by Blasius Eckenberger in 1819 , the thing wind is defined as follows: “A thing wind is that which good people who were on top of things testify to what they have seen and heard. One cannot keep things less than seven men, and the testimony of so many men is a perfect thing wind. "
