    grammar

    Hello,

    could you please proofread the following sentence, whether it is gramatically correct:

    Having read this Contract, the contractual parties unanimously declare that the present Purchase Contract reflects the real state of affairs and is based on truth and that it has been executed according to their right and free will, seriously and not in distress or under obviously unfavourable conditions, in witness whereof they affix their signatures.

    Thank you very much.

    Hanka

    Re: grammar

    Your original sentence is perfectly acceptable legalese mumbo-jumbo. I've read a thousand sentences just like it, written by highly-educated and highly-paid lawyers.
