After Christopher Columbus discovered America and some years later when the portuguese Vasco de Gama made out the route to India by the Cape of in All haste numbers of ships to explore new countries and for several Ages adventurers from these in ovations brought Back into their respect by countries Gold from America and precious stones from India. And then the dutch in their turn embarked in their heavy boats set off to search through Ajla the seas on the Globe where withal to furnish their counters. But instead of Only seeking precious stones and metals like the Spanish and portuguese they applied themselves to make a. Profit of exotic vegetables and Coffee sugar Vanilla &c., became the base of their commercial operations and instead of becoming Gold merchants they became in a Short time the immense riches they amassed by this Commerce proved the solidity of their speculations. But at the same time that these millionaire grocers sought for useful plants they did not Overlook those which might also flatter the sight. Flowers from Japan India and the Cape very shortly embellished the Garden of Haarlem and whenever a new specimen arrived All be population was in a state of emotion. Nevertheless none of the plants produced the same excitement As the Tulip and in truth at sight of this Flowers elegant Calyx gracefully Bali need on a slight Stem and painted wit i the most glowing colors it was a wild delirium of dec Stacy and one saw rare bulbs sell for a Hundred thousand francs apiece tulips were quoted on the Exchange at Amster. Dam and the thing became so exaggerated that the dutch government was obliged to step in and put a Stop to the ruinous Folly of the Florist Mono mania. Notwithstanding the. Japanese Flower for a Long time was kept up at a most exorbitant Price and a new ,1 produced by study care and cultivation of the seeds excited All the enthusiasm of which dutch natures were capable. In the Middle of the. Fresh looking landscapes of Holland in the Centre of those Green Meadows scattered Over with populous villages sunny Villas of a thousand colors wind Mills and Cut through by meandering canals where boats of Ali sorts were sailing about with sails set As if on the Ocean one perceives the town of Haarlem seated on the Borders of a Lake which has been pompously styled the Haarlem sea. The capital of the North of Hollands the country of the most eccentric of Flora maniacs in the world has the physiognomy of All dutch towns narrow streets very Dull but of most exquisite cleanliness Brick or wooden houses with their notched Gable ends on the first floor like All dutch houses but in the suburbs there is an affectation of everything foreign from the Boa t sailing in the canals which resembles the chinese junk to the form of the houses which is to a Days selected from Eastern architecture. It was in one of those Villas there lived at the end of the last Century a satins eur Deckers an sex fishmonger and without question the richest Man in the country where All Are More or less in business he had embellished this Villa which was like fairy Palace and when he retired it was. To reside there leaving his son William Deckers at the Bead of the business while he lived at his own vill. Which resembled a Chin there it was that from morning to evening Monsieur Deckers amp mused himself aided by his servants in arranging and watering the various Beds in his Garden which had been designed and Laid out by an English artist and were flourished in abundance a Quantity of exotic. Plants. Had it not been for his ruffed shirt and shoes Wilh Gold buckles any one might have taken him for one of his old servants from his manner of expressing himself and i style but beneath this Tough exterior this factitious Good less one easy discovered the Vanir Pride the most unbearable that in Vas Only based on Money and everything like Persona Merit or Talent was unpleasing in the eyes of Hirn who was completely destitute of All education. This same Deckers was the son of a Porter in the. Amsterdam Market and commenced life As a simple fishermen but instead of liking the seafaring life As he had amassed a few florins he stepped on land and became a. Hawker of fish in the streets of. Haarlem. In this he succeeded Well and shortly afterwards established himself in a stall near the Market. Some years later he quilted this worm eaten shop for one on a much larger scale and later again the House of Deckers having been very prosperous became one of the ii fit As fish merchants in Holland they sent their own vessels at the fishing season to Newfoundland and to the seas and it was they who made the stocks Rise or fallen the Amsterdam change so that when the porters son placed the affairs of the House in his songs name he possessed somewhere about ten or twelve millions of capital. Then it was that he spent Money profusely to give himself importance and not knowing How to employ his time he became an Amateur of tulips. But be soon became passionately fond of,.that which in che commencement was a fancy,.and his Caprice. Became transformed into a Mono mania. With much care and above jul much Money the new Horticulturist collected together the beat species of tulips to be met Wilh. And then he commie need seeking for unknown once and of he begrudge no Money to possess anything uncommon every traveler coming from Japan with a new bulb was certain of Selling it dearer to him than to any one else and thus he Beeme master of about a dozen varieties perfectly unknown which to a real Amateur were Worth five Hundred thousand florins. And he valued these treasures More than All else that he was Worth. A a warm afternoon in the month of june 1785, Monsieur Deckers stood in the Middle. Of his dressing room a which was hung with Maroon velvet and richly furnished in the style of the Day and half a dozen valets were running hither and thither occupied in dressing him for some great occasion and there really was much analogy Between the heavy furniture and the corpulent individual frizzled Over Laden with finery and Rich chains in massive Gold who stood there. Now seeing the Flora maniac at that hour quitting his daily on his powdered wig and his gala dress it was easy to guess that some affair of great importance was in hand. The fact was that the sex Fisherman Ger had a son As we have said before Andi this son whose education had been Weil. Cared for was of an age to marry and the ambitious father was just going to ask the hand of Mademoiselle Van Selkirk the daughter of a Haarlem banker. Monsieur Van Selkirk was one of the most important personages of the country for besides the Van which he placed by right before his name in proof of his aristocracy lib was a magistrate the stad holders banker and director of the East India company in Short he was extremely Rich which in nothing spoiled the affair. Consequently a marriage with this family had for a Long time been the keen desire of the vain Deckers who despite his millions blushed in secret at the memory of what he had been Ivhon had married a Fibber woman of the Quot these were the motives Why forbears he lost sight of no Chance which might bring his purpose to Bear and we May therefore imagine his Delight when Monsieur Van Selkirk who was much pleased Wilh the manners and personal qualities of the Young Man a rendezvous for that Day. At four of clock to talk Over the matter. The Porter son was almost bursting with puffed up Pride. Haying recency ins Golden snuff Box and Gold headed Cane from his valets and perfumed his ruffles and Manchette with essence of Vanilla he took his cornered hat under his Arm and followed by valets in full dress livery he stepped through the alleys of Bis Garden toward the artificial River at the Bottom of it where a handsome Gondola with six rowers awaited him Marble Steps. Received.,with due honors by his gondoliers he seated Himfy of beneath a dais of Satin and gave tie signal for departure. The nautical boat shot off like an Arrow preceded by a running Footman on the Bank a Gold headed Cane in his band who kept ahead through All the meanders of the Stream and when he arrived at the spot where the source of the River mingled with the canal at Haarlem the Footman opened the Gate which stopped the Entrance and the Gondola took the direction of the town. An hour afterwards Mon. Jeur Decker was walking through the Harriet followed and proceeded in great state by Hie a attendants and with returning right and left All the Salit Atlois offered him when in one of the narrow tortuous it a greets near the old Market he stopped suddenly and remained in a state of. Appal anti ecstacy before a a Little Low House of Voltl fashioned aspect with sculpture garlands As decorated in the style of the sixteenth Century a but it was not Lectura Beauty of vignettes which attracted the fixed gaze of the Flora maniac his eyes were fascinated to the windows of the ground floor which co if based the so for of a e the pass ers by. The fact was that on the Windowsill of that shop via a japanese vase in which stood a Tulip gracefully waving to and from a Tulip half double with Gray petals like Satin which were marked work by a vivid Scarlet. This Tulip was of a Beauty far Superior to any possessed by the Mil Bonaire and was not mentioned in any catalogue and consequently was of incalculable value. A How came such a treasure in the shop of an Artisan like the bookmaker a asked Deckers when he had a Jittie recovered himself. The Rich Man thought easily he could obtain the prize front a Man incapable of appreciating its value and totally forgetful of where he , and of the hour which was drawing near Deckers entered the Boot maker a shop and asked where obtained the Tulip. A nah i a Monsieur Deckers a cried the disciple of st. Crispin gayly a you Are amazed Are you not Well then know that it is the produce of my own sowing.�?�. A your own sowing a a a exclaimed Deckers in Surprise. A what. You understand seeds a a Why not this is a Sample of what i can a a but of what use is such a Flower to you ? a this would be much More useful to to u�?T,1 fancy a and he took a handful of Gold out of his pocket and Laid it on the counter. A a indeed 1�?� answered Peter con Emp Sously. A you Trot off quickly sir Amateur i what a idea a handful of Gold for a Flower such As there exists not another in the world ? you Are too Good and generous. I am greatly obliged to is it the Price you Cavil at ? Well then i will Doublet treble tile sum 1�?� said Deckers. A not at All. My Tulip belongs to me and i shall not self it a a a com come 1�?� coaxed the other a Tell me your Price for i must have the Tulip at any a Well then you wont have it a answered Peter abruptly. A but Stop 1�?� he suddenly cried quitting his a you can possess it if you choose a a and taking the other by the hand and putting his Finger on his lip to command silence he led him to the extreme end of the obscure shop a arrived there he opened a door with a precaution which prevented the hinges from emitting any sound then gently raising the tapestry before the door which fell to the ground he allowed the Flora maniac to Peep into the room. It was a pretty abode hung round with tapestry also and furnished in Superior style for a Man of the class of Peter Schwartz. Through the open window a Ray of Sun entered and danced gayly amongst the ornaments on a sideboard but before arriving there it played through the Golden locks of a Young girl seated at a window and so Busy sewing that she neither saw nor heard anything passing around her. A what do you say to that a asked and Early solely for her and had brought her up with extreme care. Peter had married about Twenty years before our talc commenced a Beautiful but very coquettish girl but two years after their Union tired of being shut up in a bookmaker s shop she ran away with a lapidary from Amsterdam abandoning her husband and her Little i time the poor fellow once so Gay became almost mad with Griefs but when he looked upon his child in her Cradle who had no one in the world he sides himself his philosophic humor re tul a . And factored her As. One loves a the sly thing left Fth the world. A. sunday in Spring be was out walking Wii i his child then about seven years old when in the outskirts of the town he found a bulb shooting out a curious to discover what it might be he picked it up Ana planted it in the Garden behind the House. Some weeks later Peler became nearly wild with Delight when be saw the Flower open its petals decorated with the richest colors and know it to be a rare Tulip. Any one else would have hastened off to Tell it to a Rich Amateur who would certainly have Given him some hundreds of florins for it but Peter who saw much further guessed All the profit he might make of it a Little later from that Day he began cultivating the japanese Plant with the utmost care.
