The honorable court, finding that the beavers and goods of the defendant have been attached by several creditors, adjudge and decide that all the attachments shall have equal effect and that each person shall be paid in proportion to the amount that is due to him and, if the property is not sufficient, the defendant is condemned to pay the remainder of his debt to the plaintiff, cum expensis. Sep 8, 1684 p. 480 Jacob Sanders, constable, informs the court that a certain Frenchman, named Matthys, threatens to poison his Negress and he offers to prove it. The Frenchman, Matthys Boffie, appearing before the court acknowledges that he has slept for 2 years with the Negress and that he has 2 children by her and that he would like to buy her. Arnout Cornelise Viele, being sworn, says that he heard some conversation at his house between Jacob Sanderse and Matthys, the Frenchman, Matthys saying that he did not intend to run away with his Negress, but would buy her. Furthermore, that this morning he heard Matthys say to Jacob Sanders: "If you will not sell the Negress to me, I shall get a root out of the woods and break it in two and give the Negress one half and eat the other half myself and thus die before your door." Reynier Barents, being sworn says that he heard Matthys Boffie say this morning to Jacob Sanderse: "If you will not sell the Negress to me, I shall get a root out of the woods and break it in two and give the Negress one half and eat the other half myself and thus die before your door." Jon. Cuyler, being sworn says that he heard Matthys Boffie say that if Jacob Sanderse would not sell his Negress for 50 to 60 beavers or money, he would get a root from the woods [593]and give one half to the Negress and eat the other half himself and within the space of half an hour they would both die before the door. he heard him say so this morning. Hend. van Dyc confirms the testimony of Reynier Barentse. The Aforesaid Matthys acknowledges that he said so and he confesses that he has one child by her and that she is pregnant of the second.
