Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Dutch and British were allies ... unless they were in a war with one another. At the time of the American Revolution, the Dutch and French were with Washington and the rebellion.

This seven-year period launched John Quincy Adams' (JQA) extraordinary life of public service, brought him to maturity, and marked the way for his professional and personal future. His appointments at The Hague and Berlin, at a critical time in European history, provided indispensable training and knowledge that would serve to make him the preeminent American diplomat of the first quarter of the nineteenth century. His courtship and marriage to Louisa Catherine Johnson (LCA) in 1797 ushered in a new phase of his life and the concomitant pleasures and responsibilities of being a husband and father.
