Rescript, issued by the Danish Chancellery to the Diocesan Commander of Lolland [Present-day Denmark]: “As far as the Jews in Nakskov are allowed under the trade privilege of May 5, 1749, to enter into business, the said privilege shall remain in force; however, the number of Jews in Nakskov should be reduced to four, as they eventually pass away through death, such that no one should enjoy the privilege of settling down there, as long as there are still four of those privileged Jews.”
