I, Isaack Allerton, acknowledge that by balance of accounts I am well and truly indebted to the owners of La Garce in the sum of five hundred and thirty-four guilders, twelve stivers, this being for the purchase of sugar received to my satisfaction. I promise to pay the said sum on demand, free of costs and charges, without exception. In testimony whereof this is signed by me, Isaac Allerton, the 17th of November 1644, in Fort Amsterdam in New Netherland.
