Ordinance, issued by the government of the Kingdom of Bohemia [Present-day Czech Republic]: “The royal county offices shall direct all dominions and magistrates, that they require every Jewish petitioner for a wedding license to report his net worth and that of his bride, not in the aggregate, but for each one individually; so that in the event that the parents or those who have supplied a dowry should claim a deduction from their own net worth, [the amount of] this gift can be readily ascertained from the petition.”
