“Renewed Prohibition” (“Renovatio”) issued by George I (‘Georg Ludewig’) [Present-day Germany; Electorate of Brunswick-Lüneburg]: “[…] since it is primarily the Jews, however, who violate this law, and who stand in solidarity with other foreign Jews […] and send them around in the land as their servants under [the disguise of] their own protection-permits […] and reduce the sustenance of the load-bearing citizens […] that is why We wish to order and remind all Kramer and Jews that they should not be peddling with their goods without the special permission of the Secret Council, and to especially warn Jews of this abuse, and to legally proceed against those who have found to have peddled without a special-concessions according to current law and to report [these incidences] to us. […]” [Researcher’s note: Even though this laws addresses “tablet-Kramer, Italians, and Jews, the above excerpts are directed at “especially the Jews.”]
