Cabinet Regulation addressed to the General Directorate [Prussia / Present-day Germany, Poland, Czech Republic]: “1) Reiterates the ‘General Privilege’ (Generalprivileg) and applies it now to all the provinces (except in Silesia). 2) Orders and reemphasizes that the proliferation of Jews [in the land] is to be prevented. 3) Eliminates the Jewish Commission (Judenkommission) and turns their businesses over to the Magistrates, Judicial Colleagues, and Chambers and the General Directorate (Magistraten, Justizkollegien, Kammern und Generaldirektorium). 4) Tightens the law that requires monthly and annual reports to be sent to the General Directorate about the local Jews, their numbers and their ‘conditions/nature.’ “
