“Restrictions on Jews” issued by the Grand Jury of Barbados [British Occupied Barbados; Barbados]: “[…] and that none of the Jewish nation be suffered* to retail any goods, as they are nowhere else allowed the privilege, which is considered extremely pre-judicial to the poor of our own nation, who might be comfortably supported thereby.” [Researcher’s note: *“Suffered” in this context means “permitted.”]
