I received a package of copies today from Friesland
I was glad to receive a package of copies, today, from Friesland. The first page of the set of copies has a title that says "Een en ander over Friesland's Zeewezen voor 1665". Some of the goodies contained are the geneology for the Stellingwerff family, showing Aucke and Frederick, the guns and crew for the Zevenwolden (38 guns and crew of 135 men). It also mentions Ariaen Heeres Cleyntie's ship, by name, in 1652. He commanded the Vergulde Pelicaen. His fellow Harlingen Directors' captain, Andries Douweszoon Pascaert, commanded the Sint Vincent in September 1652.
