[Extract] In 1639 the Tokugawa Shogunate government issued an edict to exile the partners and children of Dutch and English traders. It followed earlier orders to exclude first the Spanish and then the Portuguese from the country, to ban the promulgation and practice of the Christian faith in Japan, and to forbid the exit of Japanese individuals and vessels from the country. By 1641, the Dutch East India Company (Vereenigde Oost- Indische Compagnie, or VOC) would be limited to trade only from Deshima, a constructed island offshore Nagasaki. As with trade, communication between exiles and their Japanese friends and families would be heavily restricted for many years.
