To whomever it may concern.

I am delighted to let you know that the people of Holland have regained freedom once more from the oppressive hands of our old masters in Burgundy.

We would like to extend our gratitude to our helpful liberators: Her Imperial Majesties of Austria and England for the support of our Independence.

No blood had to be shed for our independence to be recognized. We are a peaceful people. Rejoice!

Rutger Wever
