“Ordinance regarding the trading of flax” issued by the Lower Austrian Government [Austria]: “The passes of Jews who trade with flax have to explicitly say that the Jew is only allowed to sell the flax on ‘privileged’ (licensed) markets, and that they are to refrain from selling door-to-door; the time and the location where this annual market takes place has to be noted also.”
