Scanned Document:

Mr. Marten Cregier:
Whereas, Andries Draeyer, the Commandant of Fort Nassau, will stand in need of some money for the support of that Fort and its garrison, therefore have I considered it necessary to provide him with credit there; and you are hereby required to furnish the abovenamed Commander on his order whatever he shall need for that purpose, until otherwise directed, and not fail every three months to transmit to me proper account of the same. Whereupon relying, I remain, &c. Dated Fort Willem Hendrick, the 27th September, 1673.
