Cneuffel, Polonais, qui, au rapport de Bock, dans son Histoire des antitrinitaires, s'établit ŕ Amsterdam ...': Hirsch II, p. 58: This is not directly a medical treatise on gout as the title page indicates, but it describes among other things the curing of Chr. Arcissewski (1592 - 1654) [Artichewsky] suffering from the disease, by Cneuffel. Arcissewski was a Colonel in the Dutch army in Brazil and a leader in the conflict with the Portuguese. The book was written in the form of a letter to Johannes de Laet and is a rare unrecorded medical Americanum. Actually the book was not written by Cneuffel, but it is Arcissewski who informs us on the pain he suffered and on how Cneuffel cured him. He highly praises Cneuffel's medical skills.
