Ships affairs. " Instead of Arjien H. Nederbergh and his family who had lost all wish to proceed, after the " Driebergen" had put back, we send you by the ship the "Mydrecht" a freeman as agriculturist named Cornelis Dirckz Cool of Schoonderwoert; Marijtje Cornelis Brave his wife, and three children, viz.: Griertje Cornelisz, Dirck Cornelisz, and Annetje Cornelisz. He leaves subject to the conditions of the Seventeen dated 20th October, 1687, and is to be assisted accordingly. The "Mydregt" takes various kinds of timber for building purposes to the Cape.". . . .
