[…] We desire that you protect yourself against the Jews, who are present [in your districts] and who hold concession- or chamber-permits which allow them to exchange silver or engage in other kinds of trades [but] that are not made out to them personally (hold their name) […] and not to permit them to pursue any trade, but rather to proceed against these according to the mandate from August 16, 1746 […]”
