On permitting Jews in the military services to marry Jewesses and on home furlough.
The Emperor was pleased to imperially order: 1) Jews performing military service, including those situated
in the capitols, are permitted to have their wives and children with them: but in order that Jewish garments not
be worn, they must, as a rule, wear German clothing. 2) Jews performing military service are permitted to
marry Jewesses, registering their male children as Cantonists, in accord with the imperial decree of 1828*,
in addition to regulations on Jewish recruit obligations; and 3) Regarding authorization for home leave for the lower
ranks, the prescribing of the period for discharging Jews performing military service is
at the discretion of their commanders.
