1660. I, Piter Devres, the chief historian of the court of Wilhelm, Stadhollder of the United Provinces, have been order to record the following items of note in the history of our nation. Both Imperial Spain and the evil English have declaired war on us, but we have struck back. Our army was invested Antwerp, and has taken it for the Dutch. Our Privateers have raided Barbados, and burned several English ships. Our economy has improved, thanks to the trade routes established between firstly Willemstad, and Caracas to sell Manufactured goods, between Nijmegen and Norwich to sell Textilles, and Amsterdam and London to sell the English Gems of the finest quality. We hope for peace, but we are prepared for war. The court of the United Provinces.<>File sent to Henrik(France).
