The prayer is also for the king's wife, Augusta, his widowed mother, Elizabeth Louise, and the government of Prussia in general. The author identifies himself as Elhanan Rosenstein (p. 5). On p. 12 he writes that the king set that day as a day of prayer for the king and his government. 2) Three pages of extracts from the catalogue of the Bibliothek der jüd.
