Scanned Document:

Concerning the case of [      ] Geurt Tyssen, and J [      ] Verlett and Anna Hack:

After considering the papers in the case of J [      ] Verlett and Anna Hack, plaintiffs, and Captain Geurt Tyssen, defendant, concerning the purchase of Negroes, the director and council find that the parties on both sides have been deficient in obeying the interlocutory judgment of 16 September[1] in which the plaintiffs were [      ] according to law; however, in as much as the dispute still remains undecided, and as of yet no payment has been made for the male and female Negroes whom the plaintiffs claim to have been returned by the captain, and the defendant says [      ] returned home [      ] also concerning those Negroes [      ] still used by the plaintiffs; therefore, the defendant complains [      ] . The director and council refer [      ] to arbitrators hereby authorized thereto: Jochem Pietersen and Paulus Leendertsen, and the fiscal, Cor [      ] van Tienhoven as a third person in case the parties cannot agree.
