    • 1932, Miroslav Krleža, Povratak Filipa Latinovicza, (Večernji list, Zagreb, 2004), p. 82:
      Između dva dvorska lova, ustrijelivši sto šezdeset i dva gnjetla, sedamdeset i tri zeca, tri divlje svinje i jednu košutu u Konopištu, car je otputovao na Markov trg, da bi se brzim vlakom vratio u Ischl, gdje je zaklao četrdeset i tri jelena i sedamnaest srna, a međutim je kao polubog i nadnaravna pojava dao svoju živu carsku ruku presvijetlom gospodinu Silviju plemenitom Liepach-Kostanjevečkom i, dotaknuvši svojom posvećenom pomazanom jeruzalemskom desnicom ovog plavokrvnog smrtnika, oduhovio ga i posvetio za čitav jedan život!
      Between two royal hunting-parties which had shot a hundred and sixty-two pheasants, seventy three hares, three wild bears, and one roe ad Konopište, The Emeperor had left for St. Marcus' Square to return by express train to Ischl, Where he killed forty-three stags and seventeen does, but in the meantime, like a demigod and a supernatural being, he had extended his Imperial hand in the flesh to that most illustrious gentleman, Silvius Liepach of Kostanjevac, and thus touching that blue-blooded mortal with his right hand, consecrated and anointed at Jerusalem, he had sanctified and consecrated him for a whole human lifetime!
