As the chief of the Colombo dessavony.
His relations with the "landraad" were manifold. Lack of
differentiation in the powers and functions of the dessave is one reason the
documents got mixed up, the other being that the headquarters of both the
dessave and the landraad were in Hulftsdorp. Moreover, the dessave was the
chairman of the "landraad". For documents dealing with the accounts of the
Colombo dessavony, see no. 3592.
