Excerpt from Calendar of Historical Manuscripts: In the Office of the Secretary of State, Albany, N. Y

Resolved, That the Clerk of the Senate cause to be printed 500 copies of the Calendar to the Land Papers from 1643 to 1803, and the Calendar to the Historical Manuscripts from 1638 to 1801.

In accordance with the above resolution, the Calendar to the Land Papers was printed and distributed at the last session Of the Legislature, and the first part Of the Calendar Of the Historical Manuscripts in the Department Of the Secretary of State is herewith submitted. It embraces the Records of the government whilst the Colony was in the possession Of the Dutch.

This country having been resorted to for some years after its discovery, by private traders and companies Of Holland, they established posts on the Island Of Manhattan, at the Esopus, in the vicinity of the present city of Albany, and on the Delaware. Navigators in their service discovered the Connecticut river, explored the shores of the Sound, of the Atlantic and Of the Delaware, and Dutch traders visited these coasts, bartering their commodities with the natives for beaver and other furs.

The country thus discovered and explored, extended from Chesapeake bay to Cape Cod, and was called new netherland.

Merchants in Holland possessing enterprise and capital were soon made familiar with the richness of this territory, the pleasantness of its waters and the fertility of its soil.
