In this fish’s name I now begin; you people all together, stand by me, hear about this great miracle that happened this year on water and on land. This is certainly true. 2. First I will describe Geneva, the beautiful city, where on the 12th of February a fish was caught by man. 3. Three ells high, it was, and also five ells long. Everyone wondered who looked at it. The fish had a true human head. Everyone was shocked who looked at the fish.
