Dutch colonial council minutes, 20-29 June 1645

Affidavits. Of Pierre Malenfant from Rhemes, Paulus Heyman from Leyden, and Tryntje Barents, his wife, that they were returning from the bouwery on Manhattan island, and were challenged by the sentinel as above stated, when some bantering words were exchanged, and one of the party told the sentry to kiss his ----- ;thereupon a collision took place, and Malenfant received a thrust of the soldier's half-pike in his arm and thigh. [1645]

Court proceedings. Fiscal vs. Peter van den Bergh and William de Key ; in consequence of the challenge of some of the judges, the clandestine insinuations of some restless people, and the small number of the bench, which consists of only two councillors, this case is deferred until the arrival of the new director, who is hourly expected ; meanwhile, defendants are not to leave the Manhattans. [1645]
