“Ordinance” issued by Reinhardt Dieckhoff Thile Neuendorff on half of Fredrick William I of Prussia [Present-day Germany, Lithuania, Poland, Russia; Kingdom of Prussia; Kingdom of Prussia]: “[…] It has already been ordered on August 30 that all protected-Jews in the cities […] are to carry with them a certificate/proof from their local authorities when they are traveling to prove that they are protected-Jews or children or servants [of a protected Jew …]; however, since it has come to our attention that this is not heeded, which is why we wish that it’d be made known to protected-Jews […] that should they henceforth not be able to produce a certificate/proof [at the toll-crossing] that they are to be regarded as foreigners and required to pay a body-tax.” [Researcher’s note: This document was signed in Berlin.]
