Ordinance, issued by the Interior and Police Ministry of Prussia [Present-day Germany]: “In order to prevent Polish Jews from distributing counterfeit coins made in England, the previous ordinance regarding the issuance of passports to Jews and the caution appropriate therefor, is hereby amended inasmuch as no foreign Jew shall be given a passport to the seacoast, nor any Prussian Jew who is not already known to be a righteous and reliable man.”
