The structure of the Brazilian Supreme authority is outlined in this chapter. Governors were appointed to each province in Brazil to maintain control. They were meant to protect the rites and religious services of the Dutch faith and the rights of the citizens. Councillors were appointed to aid the governors in their decisions. Magistrates were also appointed to each province. They were ordered to govern the towns and villages of the district. Electors and sheriffs were temporarily appointed and were not compensated for their service. Count Johan Maurits' departure is also depicted in this chapter. Count Johan Maurits' report of the situation in Brazil and their resources are described in this chapter. In this report he also lists his concerns and the issues that were present during his time in Brazil.
