8/17/2022 3:21 AM it is an interesting document, no doubt, and kind of ridiculous, in very neat script, but I'm not able to translate this old fashioned style of administrative language, or type all of it.
the story seems to start on 995548, with a complaint by Kreisrabbiner Wetzlar in Gudensberg to the Niederhessen government in Kassel about the conduct of the Landrat (county mayor) in Fritzlar. As a studied man [schriftfaehig], he is supposed to receive notes in sealed letters, and not on open sheets, sometimes smaller than a complete sheet. This is discrediting the Rabbi in the eyes of his community. He also seems to function, in addition to county rabbi, as a teacher. There seem to be different rules for communication by the state with those positions.
The longer part is the answer of the Landrat to the Niederhessen government about the complaint by Kreisrabbiner Wetzlar. His excuse is that he never received official confirmation that the rabbi is 'schriftfaehig', and what exactly the rules are for correspondence with him.
All this kept busy quite a few scribes and is filling pages and files ...
8/17/2022 4:02 AM forgot to mention that the rabbi had studied at the universities of Wuerzburg and Marburg, which is remarkable!
