"Van der Heyden died in 1712 a very wealthy man, with a large collection of both his own paintings and those of his contemporaries, including Jacob van Ruisdael, Gerard ter Borch, Govaert Flinck, and Jan Lievens.216 But his wealth derived not from his painting, or from the glassmaking business, but rather from his pursuits in the realm of technology and invention. While van der Heyden’s career as a painter is only sparsely documented, the archive provides much more information about his inventions, since he not only published multiple books explaining them, he also was extremely successful at marketing and putting them to use on a large scale. Both of his major inventions, street lamps and fire hoses, ingeniously combined not only a new variant of a particular technology, but perhaps more importantly, new methods of managing this technology more efficiently on the large scale required by a city of Amsterdam’s size and importance. Van der Heyden was clearly an extremely talented businessman. Beginning in 1669 the city government put up 2,556 of van der Heyden’s new streetlamps, and implemented his detailed specifications for the organization of lamp lighting in Amsterdam, naming him, furthermore, “overseer and director of the lanterns lit at night” (opsigter en directeur des bij nagt ligtende lantarens), making him responsible for the operation of the entire system.217 Not only were his system and lamps adopted in other cities in the Dutch Republic, his guidelines were also implemented in Berlin in 1682.218 In 1671, van der Heyden and his brother Nicolaas received a patent for a new fire hose, and in 1673 they were named by the city “supervisors of the city fire pumps and fire equipment” (opsienders van stadts brandspuiten en brantsgereetschap). After Nicolaas’ death, Jan took on his son as his partner, and together they published the Description of the Recently Invented and Patented Fire Engines with Water Hoses and the Method of Fighting Fires Now Used in Amsterdam (Beschrijving Der nieuwlijks uitgevonden en geoctrojeerded Slang-Brand-Spuiten…), with multiple engravings by Jan the Elder."

Yea! Falling shall we see scepter, censer, scares, Towers and escutcheons, even the white flag; Henceforth will all be fraud, murders and violence, Which we shall find instead of sweet repose. Great streams of blood are flowing in each town; Sobs only do I hear, and exiles see! On all sides civil discord loudly roars, And uttering cries o all sides virtue flees, As from the assembly votes of death arise. Great God! who can reply to murderous judges? And on what brows august I see the sword descend! What monsters treated as the peers of heroes! Oppressors, oppressed, victors, vanquished...The storm reaches you all in turn, in this common wreck, What crimes what evils, what appalling guilt, Menace the subjects, as the potentates! And more than one usurper triumphs in command, More than one heart misled is humbled and repents. At last, closing the abyss and born from a black tomb There rises a young lily, more happy, and more fair."

"He called himself Major Fraser", wrote Vandam, "lived alone and never alluded to his family. Moreover he was lavish with money, though the source of his fortune remained a mystery to everyone. He possessed a marvelous knowledge of all the countries in Europe at all periods. His memory was absolutely incredible and, curiously enough, he often gave his hearers to understand that he had acquired his learning elsewhere than from books. Many is the time he has told me, with a strange smile, that he was certain he had known Nero, had spoken with Dante, and so on." Like Saint-Germain, Major Fraser had the appearance of a man of between forty and fifty, of middle height and strongly built. The rumor was current that he was the illegitimate son of a Spanish prince. After having been, also like Saint-Germain, a cause of astonishment to Parisian society for a considerable time, he disappeared without leaving a trace. Was it the same Major Fraser who, in 1820, published an account of his journey in the Himalayas, in which he said he had reached Gangotri, the source of the most sacred branch of the Ganges River, and bathed in the source of the Jumna River?
James Baillie Fraser "Journal of a Tour" from 1820 is the book in question.

August 1914 - During WWI, two Bavarian soldiers captured a Jewish-looking man in Alsace. During the all-night interrogation, the prisoner of war stubbornly refused to give his name. Suddenly, in the early hours of the morning, the unidentified Frenchman got very irritable and started to rant about the futility of the war. He told his captors, "Throw down your guns! The war will end in 1918 with defeat for the German nation and her allies!" One of the soldiers, Andreas Rill, laughed at the prisoner's words. He thought that the man was merely expressing the hopes of every Frenchman, but he was intrigued by the prisoner's other prophecies..."Everyone will be a millionaire after the war! There will be so much money in circulation, people will throw it from windows and no one will bother to pick it up. You will need to carry it around in wheelbarrows to buy a loaf!" the Frenchman predicted. Was he referring to the rampant inflation of post-WWI Germany? The soldiers scoffed at the prediction. They let the prophet ramble on. He gave them more future-history lessons: "After the confetti money will come the Antichrist. A tyrant from the lower classes who will wear an ancient symbol. He will lead Germany into another global war in 1939, but will be defeated six years on after doing inhuman, unspeakable things. The Frenchman then started to become incoherent. He started to sing, then began to sob. Thinking he was mad, the soldiers decided to let him go, and he disappeared back into obscurity. His identity is still unknown.
