Scanned Document:

I, the undersigned, Paulus vander Beeke, acknowledge for myself, my heirs and successors that I am well and truly indebted to William de Key, of Haerlem, in the sum of four hundred and thirteen guilders, eighteen stivers and five pennies, in payment of which I have given him three accounts which must be paid at Amsterdam by the directors of the West India Company and for which I have executed a power of attorney in his favor; therefore, by his order, I have empowered Jeronimus de La Croix, the younger, to collect the money and to apply it to the benefit of William de Key. In witness whereof this is signed by me in the record, In Fort Amsterdam in New Netherland, the 13th of September A°. 1644.
