Ordinance, issued by the government of the Kingdom of Bohemia [Present-day Czech Republic]: “With regard to Jewish weddings, the general patent of 1726 remains in effect without alteration; however, in order to meet the quota for Jewish contributions, the state offices are hereby authorized to issue a wedding dispensation, in addition to the first-born son, to two other sons of those Jews who pay an annual tax of 700 to 1000 guilders, in exchange for the appropriate court fee. For Jews who pay only 500 guilders annually, this shall apply to just one son other than the first-born.”
