Our Graswinkel "also has undertaken to defend the cause of Kings against "the same Milton, and wants the book to be printed at "Elzevir's press."--It will be seen that the great Salmasius was not regarded as a Prophet by all Dutchmen, and that the Heinsii, in particular, were at feud with him.1 In France and Germany, no less than in Holland and Sweden, the attention of scholars had at once been fastened on Milton's book; and he himself tells us (Def.
