“Order” of King Fredrick William I [Present-day Germany; Duchy of Magdeburg/Brandenburg-Prussia]: “Regarding the Jews who are studying/enrolled at the University of Halle or otherwise live/stay near the university […] Since it is Our intension not to tolerate any Jew in Our lands/domains who has not been given a letter of protection and escort by Us, so it is also with those Jews who live/stay near the local university either in order to study or because of the printing shop, that is why we order them all to come/turn to Us immediately to ask for such letters of protection.”
