Edict, issued by Charles I, Duke of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel [Present-day Germany]: “Regarding the merchant-Jews, as well as their women and servants (as long as they are residents of Germany or Holland, since all others shall be turned away at the border), they must carry perfectly good passports and health certificates, without which they will be treated as personae non gratae, just like the beggar-Jews.”
