This map shows a new piece of land of Willem Bedloo (indicated with the letters A-D), situated to the east (right side of the map) of the Perica and Wayamoe creeks.

The map was signed by the land surveyor on 13 December 1732 and ratified on 14 April 733 in Paramaribo.

Scale of 100 Chains of 5 1/2 Rhineland rod = 134 ‘strepen’.
