Minutes of the Court of Burgomasters and Schepens
Jan. 8, 1664, to May 1, 1666, Inclusive.

    Wednesday Afternoon, being the 19th April 1665; are assembled at the City Hall the Heeren Allard Anthony, Cornelis Steenwyck, Oloff Stevenzen van Cortlant, Paulus Leenderzen vander Grift, Tymotheus Gabry, Joannes van Brugh, Joannes de Peister, Jacob Kip, Jacques Cousseau.

    The President states, the Governour Nicolls has ordered in writing the Burgomasters and Schepens, after divers debates previously had, to quarter one hundred soldiers on the Burghers and inhabitants of this City, for which on his side he promises to pay weekly as lodging money for each soldier the sum of three guilders in sewant or goods equivalent besides their weekly rations; whereupon Burgomasters and Schepens expressed their duty to induce the Commonalty thereto. Then they found no one disposed thereto, except by adding two guilders for each soldier in addition to the aforesaid three guilders, and they accordingly found quarters for the aforesaid hundred soldiers, which they made known and communicated to the Hon. Mr. Nicolls and delivered the list to his Honr., where the soldiers should be quartered, who gave it to Captn. de la Vaal and Capt Salisbery with orders to inspect the houses, where the soldiers should be quartered, to see if they were adapted for the reception and lodging of the soldiers; after which inspection they made report to his Honr. judging almost all fit except fifteen in number wanting double bedding and pillows for two persons, which Burgomasters and Schepens having fitted up, they were delivered over to Capt Salisbery on the 18th of this month by order of the Hon: Govr. Nicolls; and whereas his Honr. is about to depart for Boston, which he will do in three or four days, his Honr. thought fit to suspend the quartering until his return here, so as to remove difficulties between Burgher and soldier, on condition that Burgomasters and Schepens should pay now to the soldiers the two guilders per week in sewant as lodging money, which they had previously promised to the Burghers for the quartering the soldiers; and whereas Burgomasters and Schepens have requested and urged many Burghers in addition, as before, to lodge soldiers, who gave for answer they would much rather contribute than lodge soldiers, they have taken such into their serious consideration and resolved to accept the proposition of General Nicolls considering it to be best for the Commonalty and good inhabitants of this City: They have therefore resolved and hereby resolve thereupon to make a general assessment, what each shall have to pay weekly for the time of six weeks, and have resolved as the following list shews; from which assessment [if] more than the two hundred guilders weekly for the soldiers shall be paid, if the monies to be collected reach so far, whatever the Burghers have heretofore disbursed to the garrison previously stationed in this City: And the City orders the Burghers to be paid the same as Nicolaas de Meyer, Isaack Grevenraat, Molengraaf, Arien Appel, and Jacob Teunissen, baker, etc.
