“Governmental Ordinance” issued by Adolphus Fredrick (‘Adolf Friedrich’) IV and addressed the collectors of the ‘Recognition-tax’ (‘Recognition-Geldes’)  [Archduchy of Mecklenburg-Strelitz; Present-day Germany]: “Those Jews in Altstrelitz, who fall behind one half year with their ‘Recognitions-Gelder’*, shall [be required to] leave the country immediately.” [Researcher’s note: *Recognition-Gelder seems to refer to dues/taxes that were required in parts of Europe.]
