“Royal Resolution in response to the Pomeranian War- & Domain-Chamber’s…report from August 10 regarding Jewish-elders in Pomerania…on behalf of His Royal Majesty’s most-gracious special order”* [Present-day Germany, Lithuania, Poland etc.; Kingdom of Prussia]: “1) That it’s cause for concern/disconcerting to permit the oldest son of a Jew, who is to eventually receive his father’s privilege, to engage in trading alongside his father in another house, since Jewish-trade would multiply to the detriment of Christian businessmen. 2) That the other Jewish-children, who are not to be included in their parent’s protection-letters as per the General-Jewish-Privilege (‘General-Juden-Privilegio’), shall remain unwedded until they find an opportunity to get married to an [already] escorted/privileged Jew or attain their own permits. 3) That the application and/for concessions/permits shall be addressed to the royal court whenever a Jew wishes to purchase his own home. 4) The prohibition to peddle on the countryside remains in effect […] 6) Jews must have their cattle […] slaughtered by a Christian butcher […] and if the cut goes wrong, concede all of the meat to the Christian-butchers. […]” [Researcher’s note: *Signed in Berlin by v. Görne, v. Viereck, v. Happe, v. Boden – all of who were ministers under *Frederick William I of Prussia.]
