About the author: Ysbrand van Hamelsveld (1743-1812) was a Dutch Reformed minister and professor of theology. This radical Patriot had preached patriotism from the pulpit and even had called upon the male members of his flock to take up arms against stadtholder, William V. Forced to resign his offices after 1787 (when the troops of Frederick William II of Prussia crushed the Patriots), Van Hamelsveld became a professional writer and translator.
