He claims that the Polish law relates to the Jews as a foreign element, burdens them with exceptional taxes, does not grant them rights as to the rest of the citizens, and as a result society's attitude towards the Jews is negative and one cannot expect them to be useful to the state. When, in 1790, a committee was established in Poland to reform the status of the Jews, Butrymowicz was one of its active members.
