Sept. 6, 1721

“Ordinance” issued by the Pomeranian government* [Present-day Germany, Poland]: “The magistrate shall not tolerate any Jew in their jurisdiction who does not have an escort-letter from His Royal Majesty himself or be fined 100 Ducats […] and they may not permit Jews to keep more than one servant and a boy. Furthermore, no escorted-Jew – of which there may not be more than 2 in Immediat-cities (‘Immediat-Städten’)** and only one in Mediat-cities (‘Mediat-Städten’)*** – may permit his servant or boy or any other person to peddle in his name or he’s to lose this privilege and all of his belongings. Where the magistrate or local authorities encounter unescorted-Jews, they are to have them taken to the [local] prison (‘Stockhaus’).” [Researcher’s note: *The ordinance is signed in Stargrad by von Grumbkow and von Borcke. **In Prussia, an “Immidiat-Stadt” was a city that was under the direct subordination of the local territorial lord (‘Landesherren’). ***A ‘Mediat-Stadt’ was a city that was subordinate to the nobility or the administration of that ruling power.]
