“Conclusion/Decision” of the Senate of Frankfurt [Present-day Germany; Free Imperial City of Frankfurt]: “[…] That is why they (Jews) are ordered herewith in all earnestness, [and] if they wish to avoid rather severe punishment, to completely refrain from trading with hats – may it be to deliver or to purchase or to sell or divide/repurpose/resize these (hats) – and to no longer give cause for the hat-maker craftsmen(-guild) to complain and to file suit. […]” [Researcher’s note: The above order is addressed to foreign/unauthorized hat-makers in general, except for the translated excerpt, which is addressed to specifically Jews].
