“Royal Court Decision” issued by the Royal Court of Austria [Present-day Austria]: “Those Jews, who can demonstrate the cause of their presence in Vienna, may be given permission to stay longer  […] but under no circumstances [or pretext] past the time determined in their license […] such Jews, who enter [the city] after the expiration of such written licenses – as well as the issuing entity – are subject to punishment according to the law.   […] Jewish heads of a family, who receive such license and are subjects of the heredity land are permitted to […] keep their families and servants with them [in the land]; foreign Jews, however, must send off these [wives and servants] from Vienna with the expiration of the aforementioned time period, since only they, but not their wives, children, and servants are necessary for the care/provisions of their business.”
