    [See Hatting citation. The transcription should read: Anthoni en dat tot toegift van seecker gekochte thuijn. Belovende hem te vrijen en te guaranderen als na reghten, alles sander fraude.]. Hereinafter cited as Slaves and Free Blacks at the Cape 1658-1700.

Böeseken se Addendum van Kaapse slawe-verkoopstransaksies: Foute en regstellings", Kronos (Foute en regstellings) 9 (1984): Nog 'n verstommende foutiewe weergawe van 'n dokument kom op bladsy 142 van die addendum voor. Onder die datum 25.4.1685 lees ons by Böeseken:
    "Anthony from Guinea (14) sold together with a garden by Cornelis Linnes, an official, to the Free Burgher Willem van Wijck, but Willem had to promise to free the slave ("Anthoni en dat tot toegift van seecker gekochte thuijn belovende hem te
    Vrijen en te guaranderen als na reghten, alles sonder fraude"). No date for the attainment of freedom stated in the document".
         In die eerste plek is dit nie hierdie veertienjarige slaaf wat verkoop word nie, maar wel Linnes wat sy huis en tuin verkwansel. As 'n toegif op die koop skenk Linnes die Anthony aan Van Wijck. Dat die koper van die huis en tuin die slaaf sou moes vrystel is glad en geheel nie deel van die ooreenkoms nie. In die tussen hakies aangehaalde gedeelte behoort daar ná reg na die word "thuijn" 'n punt te wees. Die gedeelte "belovende hem te vrijen en te guaranderen als na reghten, alles sonder fraude" is een van daardie amptelike en wetlike klousules wat destyds in bykans alle aktes van oordrag voorgekom het. Dit beteken dat die verkoper verklaar dat hy die eiendom verkoop vry van alle verpligtinge. Die koper verkeer dus onder geen verpligting wat die vorige eienaar sou aangegaan het terwyl dit nog in sy besit was nie. Hier is dus geen sprake van 'n slaaf wat vrygestel word nie vandaar dan ook die gebrek aan 'n datum vir die "vrystelling".. Hereinafter cited as "Foute en regstellings."
