Spain, Portugal, Belgium, and Holland: Vols. XIV–XV.  1876–79.
 
Holland: Delft
Hugo de Groot
Gerard Brandt (1626–1685)
 
Translated by John Bowring

DELFT! envy not the Maese,—let her Erasmus claim:
De Groot is great as he,—his glorious end and aim
Were Holland’s happiness; but discord would not heed,
And unity was lost in difference of creed.
Could Holland’s provinces have shared his noble mind,        5
United Netherland had still remained combined.
