Order, issued by the Magistrate of Copenhagen [Present-day Denmark]: “All Jews living in Copenhagen who have a royal Letter of Freedom to do so, but who have not yet taken the oath of allegiance and acquired citizenship, 14 days after the publication of this bill, should appear at the Town Hall to take such oath, if they intend to enjoy the freedom obtained, and not be regarded and punished as violators of royal mandate; but the Jews who live here without privileges and are not already citizens of the city, must either within five weeks from that date see themselves provided with the freedom to settle, or leave the city, under the penalty provided by the law.”
