Hendrick de Raedt's pamphlet
Since we now have Hendrick de Raedt's pamphlet, and can see the benefits, it is clear that we need to acquire the rest of the documents that we know exist, or at least existed in 1930. That includes the documents at the Zeeuwse Archief about Directors ships and the "Staet van Oorlogh te water van 1648", probably at the Nationaal Archief at the Hague. I am increasingly sure that Frank Fox is right about everything we want to know existing, and just needing to be found and analyzed. Frank found that to be true with England, and it seems to be true for the Netherlands, as well.
