I, the undersigned, acknowledge that I have received from Susanna de Truw two pieces of duffel, one [mss destroyed]

piece of duffel being long 38 ells and the standard grey piece being long 37.5 ells, which aforesaid merchandise I

promise to trade for her benefit. This day, the 19th of September 1649. Was signed: Alexander Boyer. We, the

undersigned, declare that the receipt, written, dated and signed as above, was found by us to agree with the original, this

16th of March 1651, New Amsterdam [Jacob Jansen Huys, Gerret Jan(sen)], acknowledged before (me, Jacob Kip


I would think Susannah might have made such arrangements as part of managing her household, whether or not her

husband was alive or away, and so would not take this as necessarily indicating that Philippe was gone.

Married Philippe du Trieux in 1621 and came with him to America in 1624. She was still living in 1654.
