We Frederick Wi tian, by the Grace ul God, King of
Prussia, Ae.
enolding with satic fiction the perseverames and distine
guished Dravery with which our ary Nas sustained until
(he present momentits struggle for out coultry, as well
as the numerous chorts and sacrifices by which our faith.
ful subjects have with the greatest cauiadion contributed
ln cvery Manner bo its defence, wud to obtain the yreat re.
sults for which this struggle has been wnaderta hens we
have firm contidence, that this public spirit, which has
been manifested by all with so much glory, will never cool;
and we baild upou it priacipally our hope of success in
our just cause, and of the Yeormamentand solid cstadlish.
ment of all States, particularly that of Prussia.
We also perceive with pleasure the promptitude and zeal
with which the Landwehr has been organised, and the
Levy-en-mass carricd into execution; and behold with
gratitude the attachments to our person, and to our coun.
try, by which the Prussian nation is particularly distine
guished. In doing justice to these sentiments, we believe
it to be our duty not to demand more efforts and sacrifices
tha necessity may exact, iu order that business may suf.
fer the least possible interruption, as upon that depends
so essentially the welfare of our faithful subjects. We
command them, in respect to the Levy-en-mass, enjoined
by the edict of the 2ist April of the present year, as fol-
lows -—
Art 1. The Levy-eu-Btass shall continue and be enforc-
ed as aircady orgercd: as the patriotism, however, which
has been generally manifested induces us to think that
every citizen capable of serving is filled with an anxious
desire to defend the country in case of danger, and will
cheerfully obey the first summons to take up arms, if in.
firmities and old age do not prove obstacles to fulfilling so
honourable a duty, we have mado the following modilica.
tions :—
View original 2. There shall be forincd out of the Levy-en-Mass a
Reseryce, which being kept constantly at its full comple.
ment, may be sufficient to complete promptly the Land-
wehr. A particular ordinance will regulate the organi-
zation of this Reserve.
3. Moreover, in the country and in the towns which
shall not contain 300 men fit for theservice of the Levys
en-Mass, one-third of this number shall hold themselves
ready, alternately, during ove week, to enter in case of
need on immediate service in mounting guard, and in ful-
filling all the military aud police functions that the Ma-
gistrates may require.
4. In the large cities where business is Iless compatible
with the military service, andin which they may find more
than 300 inen fit for the service of the Levy-cn-Mass,
there shall be formed of the one third which shall remain
when the men engaged for the Landwehr shall be deducted,
some permancnt companies or battalions of citizens, who
will make part of the Landwehr, but whose duty will be
confined to the defence of the city. In those places where
guards of citizens already exist, they will enter into those
companies or battalions.
The Levy-en-Mass, as well as the companies and
battalions of arquebussiers and of burgess guard, will re-
Inain under the immediate orders of (vir respective coin-
manders; but they will lik wise be under the control of the
magistrates of the police of the place or district,
8. ‘Fle Ministers of Justice, without exception, as well
as the Functionaries of the Police and of the Commanes,
with the exception of Provisional Councillors, will remain
in the country on the approach of the enemy; but it is
forbidden them to fake any oath to obey him. All the
other superior authorities, particularly all the administra-
(ive authorities, will retire: itis expected, however, that
they will nol withdraw undil the last moment.
9. The Levy-cn-Mass will be exercised and trained every
Suaday aud Holiday y and they will mect Girce ev culnes in
cach week fora like purpose.
10. ‘Phe evacuation of a place, aud the devastation of x
district, shall not be c arricd info cvccution without pari.
culas orders from tie Military Goveraments in ca-o those
measures shall be padsed necessary. Tn conclusion, it is
uoderstoud that itis the Gufy of every individual to de-
prive the eneiny as much as possible of al) meang of sub-
Wepertic:laily rocoinmend to our faithful subje@ts the
observance of the aos earticl ve, aud to heep in mind, tltat
