In 1768 he merged this company with two others under the new name '' Ultimatum est''.

At page 24 we learn e.g. that the printer Houttuin was paid 203 florins for the printing of 50 sealed contracts (as this item) and 24 unsealed contracts. We known from a recently published doctoral thesis ( Hendrik Martijn Punt - Het Vennootschapsrecht van Holland , 2010, Leiden University , ISBN 9879013079753) that the workings of the succeeder company were the subject in 1779 of a law suit. From this court case we learn that the founder Johannes van der Heij had fled to Kleve ( Germany) after embezzling 70.000 fl.
