Patent, issued by Charles II, King of Bohemia [Present-day Czech Republic]: “His Majesty, with regard to the restrictions on Jewish weddings, is letting stand the law made on September 25, 1726, but nevertheless reserves the right, should there be good cause and His Majesty were to be presented with such in a particular case, to grant, after contemplation of the same, a wedding permit, by way of dispensation, to the petitioner and any other Jewish son otherwise unauthorized to marry; at the same time, His Majesty wishes that those Jews who marry abroad shall pay the appropriate export tax on that which they plan to take out [of the country], and also that not any more Jews shall be accepted into Prague than are leaving therefrom on account of getting married.”
