Example text

Ever mindful of the real business of life, Linschoten did not neglect to make a brief market analysis, concluding that one could very easily open up a trade with the Samoyeds but that it could never amount to much, since they were such a poverty-stricken, miserable, misshapen folk. On the first of August, the ships pushed into the Kara Sea, which was as 30 The Samoyeds and their King The Samoyeds and their King The Samoyeds and their King, showing their situation, clothing and nature, their sledges which travel swiftly, the reindeer who pull them, and how our people have talked amicably with them and parted from them in friendship.

Toward the end of the century French-Dutch war marred the traditional French-Dutch friendship of an earlier day. Still, some traffic continued despite war and religion, bringing a livelihood to many Dutchmen and aiding and augmenting the other oversea trades which the Netherlanders developed in the century. Perhaps it should be added that after the War of the Spanish Succession, Dutch-French trade again became very important. The French historian Henri See declares that in 1715 the Dutch 21 France maintained their commercial position intact and their superiority and power was such that almost every attempt of the French government and the rulers of Prussia to establish direct commercial relations between the two countries was foiled by the Dutch.

When, in 1595, it began to appear that both French factions were exhausted, France declared war on Spain. The pugnacious English had been somewhat preoccupied with the equally pugnacious Irish, but in 1585, having their hands free momentarily, an English auxiliary corps under the Duke of Leicester was sent to the assistance of the Dutch, and the English entered vigorously into their role of implacable and bitter foes of Spain. In 1580, Philip II of Spain conquered Portugal, and from that date onward for sixty years, Spain and Portugal had one ruler, though a Portuguese pretender, Don Antonio, until his death in 1594 continued to make efforts to gain the throne.
