[Possible/Probable] Body Toll Tax for “Coin Jews” decree issued by the Court Chancellery to the “Bancodeputation*” [Austria] [Provisional]: “The ‘Bancodeputation’* is as asked to order the ‘toll booth owners’ of Vienna (Linienwegmautinhabern) in response to the ‘body toll lease’ (Leibmautpachtung) and to hire a soldier for 17 Kreuzern to accompany Jews to the ‘Toll Leasing Office’ (Leibmautpachtungsamt) and to not let them leave without an exit permit issued by this very office.” [Researcher’s note: *This office must have been related to the treasury office.]
