  2. [S844] Precis of the archives, JVR Journal III 1659-1662, p.164: According to these councillors Sousoa was the more inclined to grant his request, because with Oedasoa's help he would be better able to keep away from here the threatening Hessequas ; otherwise they believed that Oedasoa's request would have had little effect, as he bore no good will to Oedasoa, because the latter, once finding Goeboe rather defenceless on a certain spot, had carried off the latter's wife, who
    was the last deceased wife of Oedasoa, and sister of Eva, who is therefore sister in law to both these great lords, as she always pretends, though others confirm it.
