Prohibition of unauthorized stay for Jews on the countryside and the unauthorized selling of beverages by Jews issued by King Joseph [Present-day Poland and Ukraine]: “His Majesty became aware that in Galicia the Jews are almost exclusively leasing all pubs and misleading the common people to drunkenness. […] So we feel compelled to cause all county magistrates to immediately process all reports of unauthorized stays of Jews on the countryside and especially reports of Jews selling alcohol and to get sanctions under way. […]”
