Scanned Document:

I, the undersigned, Jan Jansz from Piersel, a soldier in the Company's service in New Netherland, promise to satisfy and pay Borger Jorisz the sum of one hundred and sixty-one guilders, one stiver, 14 pennies, the amount of my account which I have earned in New Netherland. If Borger Jorisz be obliged to pay the same to Mr. Willem Turck because he, Burger Jorisz, has become surety for me to Mr. Turck, then I promise to satisfy and pay the said sum to the above named Burger Jorisz without any contradiction, binding therefor my person and effects, wherever they may be. In token of the truth this is signed in the record by me, Jan Jansz from Piersel, this 16th of September 1648, in New Amsterdam, New Netherland.
