Henderickse Van Bael and Jan Costersen Van Aken, commissaries etc., 
the following Indians, named Queskimiet, son of Pacies, Aepie, Wickepe, 
Kleyn Davidtie [Little David], who testify and declare, at the request 
of Jan Tomasse and Volckert Janse [Douw] as follows; translated by 
Jan Dareth. First, they say that eighteen years ago, Jacob Janse Flod- 
der bought the Gojers kil, but no land with it, only a little piece north 
of said kil, which was granted him to make a garden, for the hire of 
which, these deponents, the owners of the same, have received only a 
piece of cloth. The deponents being asked if Jacob Janse Flodder had 
bought some land at Schotack, thereupon answered unanimously, No, 
but that he only had a small piece of land that they rented to him to 
sow oats upon, furthermore, that he had a rick there to house his grain 
in for the winter, but that he never had any ownership therein. Again 
the deponent being asked who are the lawful owners of Schotack 
and of the fast bank extending the whole length of the island, declared 
that Jan Tomasse and Volckert Janse [Douw] are the lawful owners, who 
bought and paid for the same, and nobody else. They declare likewise, 
according to the conveyance of Wattawit, of date the 4th of October, 
A.D. 1663, that the land on the fast bank {vaste vjal) where the house of 
Machack Notas stood, was justly owned by Wattawit, all of which aforesaid 
facts they declare were stated yesterday the 13th of this month, at the 
house of the Heer Rensselaer, in presence of the interpreter, Jan Dareth 
and Marten Gerritse [Van Bergen].

payment can be made to his infant children according to the sentence 
[of court] ; with respect to his grown up children, he said that he 
assented thereto for their portion (namely that he, Tailler, should deliver 
to the two grown up ones an obligation, and with the first opportunity 
make payment to Helena, which agreement wa.s arranged between him 
and Andries Teller and Pieter Van Alen in the presence of the orphan 
masters; and regarding the portion of Helena he said that he would 
reduce what she is to have according to settlement, excepting what by 
the aforesaid sentence is not to be done), he said also that he would give 
the orphan masters security as they demanded anew. " I shall provide 
for the payment, provided I receive payment of ten per cent interest
