“Decision” of the [City] Council of Münster [Prince-Bishopric of Münster; Present-day Germany]: “It has been decided, that Jews shall have no permission to reside here in the future (‘die Juden hinfurter alhie kein gleide haben sollen’) [instead] they [are to] pay for each day they are here one Reichsortsthaler (‘reichsorttaler’)* and they shall receive a permit [to stay] for no more than 3 days, after [these] three days, if it becomes necessary for them to stay longer, they are to apply and receive a new permit from the mayor (‘herrn burgermeister’) and in any case shall be stopped and required to give one Ortsthaler* (‘orttalers’) henceforth.” [Researcher’s note: *The Reichsortsthaler and the Ortsthaler refer to local currencies and seem to have been used interchangeably here.]
