“Royal Court Decision” issued by the Royal Court of Austria [Present-day Austria]: “All newly issued [Jewish] ‘tolerances’ (permits) are to be limited to a specific period of years, and no ‘tolerances’ shall be issued forever; because the public state administration is placed in a position where they cannot easily make such families who have not behaved properly and usefully during the stay/toleration-period to leave Vienna without causing a stir, and without robbing them of a granted right; an advantage that cannot be had for those [Jews], who have received a ‘tolerance’ (tolerance permit) forever, and which can have unpleasant consequences. The duration of the tolerance [-permits] is to be set according to the businesses for which they were sought. Ibid.”
