Mar. 14, 1550

“Official Letter” of the City of Münster to Prince-Bishop ‘Franz’ von Waldeck [Prince-Bishopric of Münster; Present-day Germany]: “[…] we wish to tolerate this just once and to extend [… to the aforementioned] Jew Salmon’s protection permit (‘gleyde’) to match (the expiration date) of the other Jews […] so long as he behaves according to his permit […] properly/obediently […however,] we wish to ask you – his princely grace [Bishop Waldeck] – to no longer bother and burden us with any further protection permits for Jews. […]” [Researcher’s note: While the city of Münster gives in to Bishop Waldeck’s request to extend Salmon’s residency/protection, it asks/demands that Waldeck not bother them with such requests for protection permits for Jews in the future.]
