Count Johan Maurits of Nassau is appointed the governor of Dutch possessions in Brazil. The count arrived in Brazil and quickly turned his attention to defending the United Providences, and with good reason, as the Spanish attacked soon after his arrival. The battle was a decisive victory for Count Maurits. The chapter then describes the defensive measures established by the count as well as the state of affairs in Brazil, including religion and politics. The new governor ruled with an iron fist, attempting to leave with “more people [transformed] into decent citizens than he had found at his arrival.”
