“Royal Chancellery Decree” issued by the Austrian Royal Chancellery [Present-day Austria]: “[…] whether Israelis are to be permitted to be[come] meat-hewers* (‘Fleischaushauen’), His Majesty have let it be known [Their] highest opinion in that regard, and that is that generally speaking, Israelis are not to be granted permission for meat-crushing* (‘Fleischausschrotung’); however, that if one or the other were to seek out [such permission] – in each case the highest decision/consent would have to be obtained. […]” [Researcher’s note: *Both of these terms refer to a butcher.]
