“Highest Decision” issued by Holy Roman Emperor Francis I [Present-day Austria]: “[… the Royal Court Chancellery’s ordinance from December 22, 1814 that prohibited Jews from trading with grain is revoked …] however, this newly permitted grain trade should not give Jews reason to conclude/assume that it [also] allows them to widen any of their other legally granted rights in provinces where they are tolerated or in provinces from which they have been barred/excluded […]” [Researcher’s note: This ‘Royal Decision’ was made public with a Governmental Circular on December 17, 1819.]
