Scanned Document:

Before me, Cornelis van Tienhoven, secretary of New Netherland, appeared Cecer Albarto, who in the presence of the underwritten witnesses acknowledged that before the execution hereof he had been fully paid and satisfied by Marta Combaer, widow of the late Jan Manje, the share and right which he, Cecer Albarto, as husband of Judic Jans, daughter of the above mentioned Jan Manje, could claim in and to the estate of his wife's father. For greater security and in witness of the truth he, Cecer Albarto, has caused this to be drawn up, promising that the aforesaid Marta Combaer will henceforth and for ever be free from molestation in regard to the matter aforesaid on the part of himself, his heirs or successors. Thus done and signed by Cecer Albarto and the witnesses hereto invited. Done the 31st of March A°. 1644, in Fort New Amsterdam in New Netherland.
