Declaratlon of Abraham Jacobsen that Isaac Abrahamsen had said that he and Philip Geraerdy were to have the wine of Augustyn Heermans and take it to the south

Scanned Document:

Before me, Cornelis van Tienhoven, secretary of New Netherland, appeared Abraham Jacobsz of Steenwyck, who at the request of Augustyn Heerman attests in place and with promise of an oath if necessary and required that it is true that he, the deponent, heard that Isaac Abrahamsz was asked in the Company’s cellar, who was to have the said Augustyn’s wine? To which he gave for answer: “ Philip at the ‘Wooden Horse’[1] and I are to have the wine and we shall take it to the south.” All of which he declares to be true. Done the 20th of October anno 1644, in Fort Amsterdam in New Netherland.
