“Decision” of the Highest Order* [Present-day Austria]: “The Permit-Fees for Jews (‘Juden-Bolletengebühr’) is henceforth to be collected (‘taken’) according to [these] two classes/categories. […] ‘First class/category’: […] wholesalers, formal merchants and their managing directors.. […]‘Second class/category’: […] junk-shop-Jews (‘Trödeljuden’) and all other (remaining) common Jews. […] The Jewish-permit fee for the first class/group is increased to 4 fl. metal-coin. […] the fee for the second class/group is set at 2 fl. metal-coins. […] the permit-fee for foreign Jews of each class is to be increased by another half (50% more). […]” [Researcher’s note: *An order issued by the “highest order” usually meant issued by the Emperor himself.]
