Excerpt from William the Silent, Prince of Orange, the Moderate Man of the Sixteenth Century, Vol. 1: The Story of His Life as Told From His Own Letters, From Those of His Friends and Enemies and From Official Documents

The story of William the Silent is an oft-told tale, related in every history of the Netherlands, comprising the years 1533-1584. Yet his life was so full, he was so prominent a figure during twenty-five of his fifty-one years, he came in live touch with so many of the actors in the last of the Reformation drama, that his full biography is still unwritten, and might easily be compiled on the scale of the latest life of Lincoln. In truth, that is the only form in which Justice could be done, while material is overabundant. The reign of Charles V. and the succeeding half century is a period rich in records. The times did indeed try men's souls and stimulate their activity. The printing-press had not checked the ready pen of the letter writer; the newspaper was not born, but anonymous pamphlets written upon current events, with journalistic freedom, were frequently issued, while both official and private secretaries scattered voluminous epistles over England and the continent, often supplying, with a true reportorial instinct, the place of authentic knowledge by gossip and rumour.
