“Edict” issued by the Farther-Pomeranian government [Present-day Poland etc.; Province of Pomerania]: “1) There shall live no more than 2 escorted Jewish-landlords (‘Juden-Haus-Wirthe’) – who own either their own home or have more than 500 Rthlr [Reichsthaler] in assets – in large Immediat-cities (‘Immediat-Städten’)* in Pomerania. […] only one [Jewish] landlord shall be [tolerated] in a small Mediat-city (‘Mediat-Stadt’)** that has an enceinte; however, in villages and on the countryside (‘offenen Flecken’) no Jew shall be tolerated. 2) A Jew who does not have children must not have more than one unmarried servant or maid […] and have his children who get married move out of the domain. 3) Transient foreign Jews are not to be taken in more than 3 to 4 nights, and they must use the right country-road and have their merchandize sealed. […] 6) No Jewish family may slaughter more than 2-3 cattle, 4-8 sheep, and as many calves […] Unescorted Jews are to be brought before the government.” [Researcher’s note: *In Prussia, an “Immidiat-Stadt” was a city that was under the direct subordination of the local territorial lord (‘Landesherren’). **A ‘Mediat-Stadt’ was a city that was subordinate to the nobility or the administration of that ruling power.]
