The Emperor had written sealed letters to them about this several times but they disregarded them completely. He was also informed that the Ghenters wished to contribute soldiers from their city instead of paying their contribution in money, to which His Majesty would not consent. Whenever he received such information, he had always written to the Queen to tell her what he wanted done in this affair, for it was of the greatest importance, for whatever the Queen had done had been by His Majesty's command.
