The father of the young lady will give his child fifty thousand Caroli guilders (shilling).
Dutch: De Vader zal aan zyn Dogter ten Huwelyk geeven 50 Duizend Caroli Guldens. [op.cit.]

Comment:
This illustrates the possessum-fu-possessor construction. As a human possessor is involved, possessor-possessum would be possible too in this case: da misi (en) tata 'the young lady's father'.
