“Writ” of the King Vladislaus II [Present-day Czech Republic; Kingdom of Bohemia]: “King Vladislaus announces to the citizens of Old-Town Prague that he has bestowed upon them the grace that he will not oppose the fact that the Jews of Prague shall stay no more than a year in Prague; however, they are to stop and require Jews to turn over a certain sum of money to Colonel County Scriptor (‘Oberstlandschreiber’) Nikolaus von Hofic on behalf of the king which he had prescribed to the Jews many years ago.” [Researcher’s note: The above is a translation of a German summary of the original Czech text both of which can be found in the cited source.]
