  62. [S606] J.L. (Leon) Hattingh, "Foute en regstellings", In die transaksie van 7.7.1693 (wat eintlik 7.6.1693 moet wees) meld Böeseken dat Antoni van Cochin (10/12) vir 70 Rds. verkoop is terwyl die veel ouer Marten van Coromandel (20/21) slegs 50 Rds. gehaal het. Dan sê sy: “At the same time Cupido of Orixa was sold (no price mentioned)”. Dit is egter nie ‘n goeie weergawe van wat in die document staan nie. Cupido van Orixa, wat ook maar net 9/10 jaar oud was, is eintlik saam met Antoni van Cochin vir 70 Rds. verkoop. Dit verklaar waarom hulle gesamentlike koopsom eintlik hoër was as die van hul ouer metgesel. Die koper se naam, Jan D. de Beer, is hier ook uitgelaat terwyl dit wel in die document vermeld word.

  85. [S606] J.L. (Leon) Hattingh, "Foute en regstellings", In die transaksie van 16.10.1697 is daar sprake van twee slawe wat verkoop is. Böeseken rapporteur die koopprys as volg: “The price paid was Rds. 133 and one guilder which was equal to f400”. Enige leser sal dit vertolk as sou elke slaaf dus na alle waarskynlikheid twee honderd gulde gekos het. Maar volgens die document was die 400 gulde slegs die prys van één van die twee slawe. Die tweede slaaf is egter vir 80 Rds. verkoop wat die totale koopsom op 640f te staan gebring het. Die verskillende bedrae staan baie duidelik in die document geskryf!
