It is therefore but fair that they should make every effort for repayment, without being compelled to do so by the Company.33

Arrangements made for establishing a school for the Company's slaves from Angola brought hither by the Amersfoort. The sick comforter, Pieter van der Stael, to be the teacher, especially as he reads Dutch correctly; and that he may encourage the slaves to attend and hear or learn the Christian prayers, it is ordered that everyone shall receive after school a glass of brandy and two inches of tobacco each. All their names are to be written down, those who have no name are to get one, paired or unpaired, young and old. Everything to be done in the presence of the Commander, who shall attend for a few days to put everything in proper order, and bring these people under proper discipline, signs of which are already apparent. All the slaves have been properly clothed, to protect them from the daily increasing
    cold. The strongest have been already set to work.
