Cornelis Melyn1

Francis Deckersen2 (Deckers), supercargo of the ship.
"a cousin of Mr. van der Hoolck, member of the States-General for the Province of Utrecht and also member of the committee of their High Might; for all matter concerning the W. I. Company and especially New Netherland. As he is a man very well inclined towards the W. I. Company, we cannot refuse his request, that his cousin should be supercargo of the ship for the outward voyage only and that you should appoint him there to any position under the Company, which may become vacant and for which he is fitted.2

Johannes Dyckmart,3 (Dyckman), bookkeepper

Michiel Bergier,4 of Angouleme, a servant of Cornelis Melyn
