“Ordinance regarding the Jews in the territories (‘Residentzien’) covering a number of points” issued by Johann Kasimir Kolbe von Wartenberg on behalf of Frederick I of Prussia [Present-day Lithuania, Poland, Russia; Duchy of Prussia]: “[…] Since previous ordinances have gone unheeded, it would be within our right to fine the entire Jewry with a hefty fee and then to expel them entirely from all of our territories (‘Residentzien’) […] however, in order not to give them the least cause to complain, we will show mercy and spare them the expulsion from our principalities […] but order herewith that each of the protected [Jewish] families are to pay twice the protection-fee (‘Schutzgeld’) […] the unprotected families are to pay twice the protection-fee and still be removed from the land if they do not have a protection-permit. […]” [Researcher’s note: The above ordinance contains several points and can be found in its entirety in the cited source. Johann Kasmir Kolbe von Wartenberg was Minister-President/Prime Minister of Prussia.]
