(Witness) Misc On 19 December 1660 de Caep de Goede Hoop Barend Waendersz was asked by an unknown person if he had been intimate with any female slaves who were consequently with child. At first he denied it, but when Van Riebeeck assured him it was to the benefit of the Company, he acknowledged that it was indeed the case. The child[ren] was/were not identified.5 
Letter* On 9 April 1662 Johan Anthoniszoon van Riebeeck wrote to the Amsterdam Chamber. ...And in order fully to reply to everything contained in your letter of the 19th September, 1661, and the despatch of the 17, dated the 23rd August last, we may mention that for the present we have debited Jan Coenraad Visser for the ƒ25 advanced to his wife by vour Chamber, that he may afterwards pay it off with grain, which is as easy as it is pleasant to him, as cash as yet but little overflows him.13

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.
