“Ordinance” issued by the Swabian Government [Present-day Germany]: “[… Jews] are henceforth to be permitted to enter the city [of Öttingen] only during the time of the annual markets/fairs (‘Jahrmärkte’) […] but otherwise be limited to help themselves (to purchase food items) before [they enter through] the gates (‘vor den Thoren’). […]” [Researcher’s note: This ordinance was issued in response to complaints brought forth by citizens that Jews from Steinhard and Trendel were purchasing food items and increasing prices.]
