“Chamber-Ordinance regarding the prevention of toll-fraud committed by Jews” issued by the Royal Prussian War and Dominion Chamber of Kurmark [Margraviate of Brandenburg; Present-day Germany etc.]: “[…] since it has been noticed by the toll-offices that some passing Jews pretend to be aids and servants of the sons of protected Jews […] we have deemed it necessary to order that all Jews are henceforth to take (apply and receive) a permit from their respective local authorities and provide this to the toll-authorities as proof that his son, servant and aid are exempt from the body-toll […] but otherwise, they are to pay a body-toll […]”
