Decree, issued by the Danish Chancellery to the Magistrate at Copenhagen [Present-day Denmark]: “Regarding the hospitalization costs of venereal Jews in hospitals: The Copenhagen Magistrate shall announce to the Representatives of the Mosaic faith community that such individuals should generally not be admitted to the hospitals for the poor, without a request of the Representatives; it does not follow, however, that the absence of such a request should, in any case, preclude the right of the poor-hospital to demand payment from the Mosaic faith community for the treatment of some of its members. If an individual from that community has arrived at, or is admitted to one of the hospitals for the indigent, by police action, it shall be considered perfectly justified to claim reimbursement from their congregation.”
