Receipt for the purchase money

Scanned Document:

Before me, Jacob Hendricksz Kip, clerk of the secretary, C. van Tienhoven, of New Netherland, appeared Pieter Wolphertsz and Elbert Elbertsz, appointed curators over the heirs and the estate left by the late Claes Jansz from Emden, who in the aforesaid capacity hereby give a receipt in full to skipper Willem Tomasz for the purchase money of a certain lot situated near the Company's five houses, for which purchase money, amounting to two hundred and fifty guilders, we release the aforesaid Willem Tomasz from all future claims which may be made by any of the heirs of the aforesaid Clees Jansz, deceased, or any other persons. In token of the truth this is signed in the record by us as curators, with Adriaen van Tienhoven and Hendrick Jansen, smith, as witnesses, this 18th of August 1648,[1] in New Amsterdam.
