What's Under the Ribbon?

I'm transcribing and analyzing several of the documents in the surrendered Bounty Land Warrant file for James Kile of Mercer County, Illinois (based on his War of 1812 military service from Ohio) for an upcoming issue of Casefile Clues.

The lovely ribbon covers up a few words of this court document that appears in his file.

I think I know what some of it says based upon what I can see through the ribbon and the context.

Can you read the words under the ribbon?
