“Royal Rescript” (‘königl. Rescriptum’) issued by Frederick William I and addressed to the Pomeranian War- and Domain-Chamber [Present-day Germany, Poland; Kingdom of Prussia]: “In cities, in which there are Christian butchers, no Jews may be permitted to slaughter [animals], but rather, they must obediently adhere to the General-Jewish-Privilege (‘General-Juden-Privilegio’); Christian-butchers, however, shall permit Jews, as often as they request it, to have the cut* done by the Jewish-butcher and to come to an agreement with them before the purchase.” [Researcher’s note: *This refers to a Jewish kosher ritual, where the slaughter of an animal must be carried out with a single cut to the throat.]
