Excerpt from A Review of the Lives and the Works of Some of the Most Eminent Painters: With Remarks on the Opinions and Statements of Former Writers Many years ago I was informed in Amsterdam, that among the archives preserved in that city were accounts relative to the life of the celebrated Rem brandt van Ryn, and had seen fragments which were said to have been taken from those manuscripts; but finding them too vague to be credited, I deter mined to see the originals myself, well knowing that nothing is more imprudent than to rely on on dits. I therefore prolonged my last visit to Amster dam, and through my connexions in that city was introduced to Messrs. C. Hagen and H. Hensken, commissioners of the Desolate Boedelhamer, or Court of Insolvency. These gentlemen had the kindness to shew me all the authentic accounts and regis ters from which I wished to gain information; judging that their contents would prove of the great est interest to the admirers of this great painter, I obtained permission to copy them, which occupied me most agreeably for several days. De Heer F. W. F abius, a gentleman well acquainted with ancient manuscripts and Dutch law, was of the greatest service in asssisting me to take exact copies of all the documents which I shall have the pleasure of communicating to the reader.
