Example text

Dutch sugar refineries operated at Marseille, Bordeaux, La Rochelle, Angers, Saumur, Orleans, and Nantes. Dutchmen bought into glass factories. They dyed cloth, distilled brandy, made pottery, and were the moving spirits in the companies which drained and reclaimed land. The Netherlands immigrants to France naturally were to be found in the largest numbers in the port cities their ships frequented, such as Nantes and Bordeaux. As the Dutch became successful and powerful, resentment on the part of the French citizens increased.

One of the principal men behind these impressive schemes of the great minister was Nicolaas Witte, a Hollander. The imagination of the Cardinal being now stimulated, the following year he projected the Compagnie de Ia nacelle de Saint Pierre jleurdelisee. This grander company among other things was to deal in all manner of merchandise, develop fisheries, build ships, exploit farm lands, refine, forge and work gold, silver, and iron, and ftnance voyages. It was formed at Nantes and its principal shareholders were to be Hollanders, and Brabanters, as well as Frenchmen.

Grain was carried to Naples and Messina, and from Civitavecchia the Dutch procured alum, wine, olives, and semi-tropical fruits. Next to Livorno, and perhaps as important for the Dutch as Genoa, was Venice, their voyages there probably beginning before the end of the sixteenth century. In 1609 the Dutch sent an ambassador to the Venetian republic, Cornelis van der Mijle, Curator of the University of Leyden and son-in-law of Oldenbarnevelt. Later, in 1620, the States sent Francoys van Aerssen, and the Venetians sent (in 1616) Christofforo Suriano to The Hague.
