April 18th. …We send you some Timorese and Rottonese slaves, who, though required here, should be employed by you at the Cape, in order to deprive them of the opportunity of deserting to their own country, from which they should necessarily be kept away. They are 39 in number, exclusive of 3 others, who are for life to labour in irons, named Roosje of Sabo, Pieter of Macassar, and Jeremias of Cabelang, late slaves of Sieur Hendrik Ter Horst, Mrs. Yan den Helm and Daniel Sicx, total 42, divided among the six return ships and the yacht Voorhout. See list. (Signed) JAN MAETSUYCKER, N. VERBURGH, LAURENS PIT, P. VAN OVERTWATER, CORNKLIS SPEELMAN, and PIETER VAN HOORN. Batavia, in the Castle, the 2nd February, 1673.
April 21st. The 39 slaves bought at our request at Batavia and the 3 convicts were landed. One of the 39 had died during the voyage. The rest were strong, healthy fellows, who will not be amiss here.. Hereinafter cited as Journal 1671-1674, 1676.
