Birth was declared on the 24th but the infant was born on the 23rd at 4 P.M.

As to the occupation, I see the letters in the first form below, but I'll have to do more research to try to figure out what it means

pinciajuolo (also pinciajualo):
an [unidentified] "condition or profession" found in the civil registers of Gambatesa circa 1819.
