Bond of Jan Jansen Schepmoes in favor of Hendrick Jacobsen Patervaer

Scanned Document:

Before me, Cornelis van Tienhoven, secretary of New Netherland, appeared Jan Jansen Schepmoes, who acknowledges that he is well and truly indebted to Hendrick Jacobsen Patervaer in the sum of three hundred and eleven Carolus guilders, ten stivers, which sum the appearer promises promptly to tender and pay on the demand of the above mentioned Hendric Jacobsen in beavers at the current market price, free of costs and charges, without any exception. In witness of the truth this is signed by the aforesaid Schepmoes, who as security hereof binds his person and property, movable and immovable, present and future, without any exception, submitting the same to the control of all courts. This 5th of Dec. 1646, in New Amsterdam, New Netherland.
