Edict, issued by Frederick William III, King of Prussia [Present-day Germany]: “Even though those Southern Prussian Jews authorized to trade may, under certain conditions, trade grains in the province of South Prussia, the common Jews from the old lands may not do so, and since likewise the Southern Prussian Jews may not trade within the old provinces, so the reciprocal arrangement with regard to Jewish trading in the old and the new provinces cannot be invoked, and so the Jews from the old provinces cannot obtain any privileges or permits in Southern Prussia, that the Southern Prussian Jews are not given within the old provinces.”
