Sacrae caesarae, et regio-apostolicae majestatis Domini Domini Clementissimi Nomine Civico Magistratui Zomboriensi
hisce benigne intimandum: Cum juxta Novum Ordinem Criminalem deliquentibus non attento Religionis Discrimine nonnisi in loco carcerum publicorum praeparati Cibi propinari, Vasa porro Cibis praeparandis idonea illa tantum applicari possint, quae Usui huicce communiter deserviunt.
Hinc ea est benigna Suae Majestatis Voluntas ut nec Judaeis deliquentibus admittatur, quo iidem Cibis per Judaeos paratis, et ad carceres adferendis vescantur, aut seorsivis ollis, aliisque fictilibus in praeparandis Cibis utantur.
Quod ipsum Civico Magistratus hinc pro Norma et sui directione de benigna mente Regia hisce notum reddi. Datum in Libera Regiaque, ac Metropolitana Civitate Budensi, die vigesima septima Mensis Martii, Anno Domini Millesimo Septingentesimo, Octuagesimo Nono.

Ad Benignum Sacrae Caesareae, et Regio-Apostolicae Majestatis Mandatum

Judais deliquentibus separatique cibi adserti per Judaos ……. Haud admi…….

In the name of His Holy Imperial and Royal Majesty and pious lord, the City Magistrate of Sombor is kindly ordered to: according to the new criminal law, criminals in public prisons are to be served only food prepared there, without any regard to their religion, and only prepared in the appropriate containers used by everyone there.

It is a well-intentioned wish of His Royal Majesty that even Jewish criminals should not be allowed to receive food which is prepared and brought by other Jews in prison, nor are such prisoners allowed to use any special containers for food preparation.

This is, therefore, made known as the norm and entrusted to the Magistrate by a benevolent royal decision. Issued in the Free Royal capital of Buda, March 27, 1789
