Mr. van Dyck,[1] Three weeks ago you were asked by our court messenger, Claes van Elslant, to vacate the Company's house by this November first; all the more now that we have made the newly constructed house inhabitable, and because we urgently need your rooms for the newly arrived minister, Domine Samuel Driesieo.[2] However, because there is still a little work to be done, [      ] again that you please make room for the aforesaid Samuel Driesio before the appointed time.
