Great news! Thanks to Terry Vanderhoof, a transcript and translation of the original Journal of the ship Bever is now available. Fascinating reading!
Terry writes that he and a group of people are working on a translation (transcription) of a letter from the Directors of the WIC to Stuyvesant, dated 9 May 1661. Part of this letter has already been transcribed in Pratt's'Annals of Public Education in the State of New York The letter mentions that Evert Pietersen, on the recommendation of Stuyvesant and the magistrates of New Amsterdam has been appointed as 'Sickentrooster, voorleser and schoolmester' and travels on the ship, 'de Gulde Bever' It mentions that his wife isn't with him because of illness. As the WIC debit accounts for De Bever mentions the son of Evert Pietersen, Consoler of the sick, it may be safe to assume that both Evert Pietersen and his son were passengers on the ship. Evert's passage may have been paid by the company but his son's wasn't.
