Translation by Abraham Governeur of a copy made by D. V. Schelluyne, 25 March 1717 of a contract signed April 13/23, 1667, for land sale before Johannes Provoost, clerk of the justices of Fort Orange in the town of Beverwyck by two Indians, Paintepoet(?) (in Dutch Keesie Wiy), and Tatankeno (?) (in Dutch Hans Vos), owners and representatives of other owners of land in Claverack on the eastern shore, who sold their land to Jan Franse van Hoisen for the equivalent of 500 guilders in beavers. Land stretches from creek of Jan Hendricks, alias Roothaar to land of Van Sleghtenhorst. Indians promise to protect the agreement against other Indian claims of ownership.
