Mortgage of Jacob Roy's house to Gillis Pietersen as security for a loan from Isbrant Dircksen Goethardt for which Gillis Pietersen remained surety

Scanned Document:

Before me, Cornelis van Tienhoven, secretary of New Netherland, appeared Jacob Roy, who empowers, as he does hereby, Gillis Pitersz in his absence to have charge and care of the principal's house, as also to have the full disposition of said house, which he, the attorney, is authorized to occupy or to rent for the benefit of Jacob Roy, inasmuch as he, Gillis Pitersz, is surety to Isbrant Dircksz Goethardt in the sum of one hundred and eighty guilders which Jacob Roy has received from Isbrant Dircksz and for which he mortgages his aforesaid house to the behoof of Gillis Pitersz or Isbrant Dircksz. Thus done the 9th of September 1648, in Fort Amsterdam in New Netherland.
