The First Dutch War on Cornelis Taenman

There is a passage in De Ruyter's journal about Cornelis Taenman. I have made a few minor corrections in spellings: "...we found one of our Vice-Admirals foundered in fourteen fathoms of water on the North bank of the Meuse, the topmasts above water. It was Captain Taenman of Enkhuizen." This occurred during the rear-guard action towards the end of the battle. His ship, the Prins Maurits was apparently sunk by gunfire.
