7/11/2012 6:42 AM Document in Germa, in old German script. I would suggest to change the language so that others who have experience in reading this difficult script become aware of it.
7/12/2012 9:58 AM Very bad handwriting, hard to read. Here is what I could make out (some words may still be wrong):

Der ad no. 36. zum Oklad der Ebräer als Burger zur
Kopfsteuer ?? Benjamin Marcus
welcher seine rückständige Abgaben zu zahlen
jetzt ??gend hat vom Magistrat eine
Delation bis Schluss des Jahres 1811 erhalten
dieses wird derselbe als beweis ??
um sich bey für allerhöchste?? Revisions
Commision des Districts legitimieren
zu können Hacenpoth den 27. September 1811
P: A: Enkel
Rathsherr

I cant quite make up the meaning of this, but here is a try:

Benjamin Markus, who as a citizen has to pay head tax with tax number 36 in the tax roll of the Jews, has until the end of the year 1811 to pay his tax arrears by the Magistrate. He can use this as a proof for something before the revision commission of the district.
Hozenpoth, the 27 September 1811
