Apr. 9, 1824

Ordinance, issued by the Interior and Police Ministry of Prussia [Present-day Germany]: “The ordinance regarding travel by Jewish paupers, dated June 20, 1821, must suffer a modification, in consideration of Jewish journeymen who have learned a trade and are willing to journey, as long as they can produce attestations about their integrity and good moral character, as the purpose of the ordinance was not to exclude Jewish tradesmen from journeying, even if they are without means. However, not only shall passports be issued to such Jews with the utmost of prejudice and care, but they shall also be marked clearly and unambiguously with the purpose of the bearer’s journey.”
