From our agent in the VOC (Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie) in Delft.

Several barges arrived in Delft recently from the Frundsberg Frei Stadt. In addition to the regular deliveries of armaments for the VOC, there were at least a couple of squadrons of hussars who trans-shipped onto sea-going vessels.

I attempted to investigate their destination, but all I could discern was they were en-route to a cold wet location but that the pay was good.

The vessels seemed to have been chartered by Tradgardland merchants via a third party.
