“Decree of the Lower-Austrian government to the Magistrate of Vienna” [Austria]: “Maria Theresa has ordered Duke Wallis, who let the deadline pass, to tolerate the Jews until Saint Michael’s Day in his territory*. After that, they are to be put up somewhere else. […] those Jews who do not pay their taxes on time due to poverty, […] are to be expelled immediately from Vienna […] in all seriousness.” [Researcher’s note: *The text reads that he has to tolerate them in his “house” (Haus), but in this case, it refers to his territory.]
