“Royal Chancellery Decree” issued to all State Councils by the Royal Chancellery on Behalf of His Majesty (‘Länder-Präsidien’) [Austrian Empire; Present-day Austria]: “[…] His Majesty also wishes to graciously allow individual Jews [to trade with grain], if they are able to purchase grains in large quantities and to offer these at more reasonable prices at current markets in order to improve the import of grains to Vienna […] however, if such Jews do not (or are not able to) maintain such trade, the granted permission is to be revoked by the State Bureaus (‘Landes-Präsidium’) without further ado which is to be explained to them (Jews) beforehand. […].” [Researcher’s note: Jews in Austria were permitted – on and off (though, mostly off) to trade with grains between the 17th and 19th centuries.]
