The book is written just before the ten days campaign and therefore Belgium is in the description still part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The ' Note ' at the back of the book of 1 January 1831, does however, pick up on current events. The writer does not have a good word to say about the Belgian revolt and calls this anarchy, treason and a pathetic imitation of the French Revolution. The Dutch King William I on the other hand, gets nothing but praise; it was not his fault at all. At the end of the 'Note' is one last epilogue of 16 July 1831: "They have now got a step further and chosen a king - may they long keep him, and treat him better than they did their first one!"
