“Patent” issued by Augustus III of Poland* [Present-day Germany; Electorate of Saxony]: “Since His most-sophisticated, mightiest King of Poland and Elector of Saxony […] our most-gracious lord would like to see the religious-service of Jews, which they have usurped to practice during market-time, stopped, that is why They are ordering herewith […] all mayors and the Council of Leipzig to prohibit this to all arriving Jews in all earnestness and to be on guard so that they no longer do this in the future either […]” [Researcher’s note: *Augustus III was also sometimes referred to as Frederick Augustus II (German: Friedrich August II).]
