|Exalted Magistrate, esteemed gentlemen!
We humbly respond to the request of Izac Hertzeg, a Jewish salesman, who submitted a request to buy a house in this place and set up a shop for himself.
According to the generous privilege and its articles 8 and 10, which were graciously granted to us and which are based on the gracious decision of His Majesty, and under number 13327, a document issued on June 9, 1800, it was decided as follows: that our Privileged Trade Association, which was numbered only 22 members, and that number then increased to 66, beyond the permitted measure, and to our material detriment, it must not grow at all - and this is prohibited by royal decree in Article 38, item 1791, and therefore no new Jews can be admitted to the city community. All this is dictated to us by numerous decisions of the Magistrate, such as those of March 9, 1798, number 342, then of June 9, 1799, number 22, and also the document of May 27, 1801, number 341. which say that all requests of Jews to enter the city community are automatically annulled. The real number of merchants in this urban community has already grown to such an extent that many of us are unable to obtain things basic for life, while others are forced to seek someone else's help, and all this is more than well known to the exalted Magistrate. Therefore: we kindly ask the exalted Magistrate, relying on his justice and good intentions, to annul the request of the Jew Izac Hertzeg (Isaac Hertzeg), in accordance with all the above, at least until the trade of the Jew Jacob Stein is closed. All his needs, meanwhile, can be covered by his two brothers and father, who already have their own separate shops. With respect and appreciation,
Humble servants of the exalted Magistrate
First signed and all other members of the Privileged Trade Association
To the Exalted Magistrate of the free royal city of Sombor, esteemed gentleman.
The privileged association of city merchants humbly responds to the request of the Jew Izac Hertzeg to be allowed to buy a house and open a shop - the association humbly begs the Magistrate, and on the basis of the higher decrees attached above, to cancel his request.
Almost 40 years ago, my father received permission to establish his home in this city community and open a shop. He really opened a shop in the house where Mr. Basilius Athanatskovits (Vasilije Atanacković) issued him a permit for that, and then he was engaged in trade for a long time. Relying on the right of my father, with the fact that I have many children and that I am obliged to support them, I humbly ask the exalted Magistrate to allow me to buy a house and open a shop in this city community, especially since I have to rely on the law and interpretation of Decree No. 60, according to which the father's right is transferred to the son. Then we should take into account the fact that my brother Lawrence was also allowed to buy a house here, and we should not ignore the fact that due to the closure of Jakov Stein's shop, this will not increase the existing number of shops. Guided by these reasons, I once again ask the exalted Magistrate to respond positively to my request. With due respect, a humble servant of the exalted Magistrate, Izac Hertzegh (Isaac Hertzeg), a Jew and a city merchant.
Submit the fiscal of the Magistrate to further state this. In the Senate of the City of Sombor, on March 28, 1821.
