“Edict against the peddling of Jews on the countryside” issued by Frederick William I (‘Friedrich Wilhelm’) [Present-day Germany, Lithuania, Poland, etc.; Kingdom of Prussia]: “1) Jewish-boys are not to have a stand at fairs or annual markets or lose their merchandize. 2) Such boys are not to pass through villages at all. As soon as one encounters these (Jewish-boys) or protected-Jews at peddling, they are to be taken into custody along with their merchandize and […] reported to the War- and Domain Chamber (‘Kriegs- und Domainen Cammer’) who will then issue a sentence of hard-labor or other kinds of punishments, depending on the gravity of the offense. 3) Protected Jews who allow these boys to have a stand […] or send them out to peddle in cities or villages shall lose their privilege (‘Privilegii’) […] foreign Jews shall be sentence to a considerable fine or corporal punishment […]; No Jew is therefore to peddle or lose his protection-permit.” [Researcher’s note: Edict was issued in Berlin.]
