New from Mr. Carl Stapel: the Jonge Prins of 1634

Mr. Carl Stapel recently sent information about the Noorderkwartier ship Jonge Prins, built in 1634. This is based on my translation of what he sent:

                                                       Korsens, and the impression
                                                       was that the ship was entirely
                                                       lost, but the ship made its
                                                       way independently and 
                                                       rejoined the fleet.
