Around this time, Crestofle Arciszewsky set sail for Brazil, and was then entrusted with command and supervision of the supplies of all arms and armor in Brazil. Although almost two months had passed in which affairs in Brazil were handled harmoniously, a letter written by Arciszewsky intended to discredit Count Maurits quickly angered both the Count and his councillors. Ultimately, Arciszewsky returned to the United Provinces, following a public and bitter feud with Maurits.
