[The correspondence of Maria van Reigersberch (1589-1653), wife of Hugo de Groot, was published in 1902. It contains eighty-one of her letters, all of them in Dutch. Another two letters by her are known; these are in French and have hitherto remained unpublished. Both these letters are reproduced in the present article, accompanied by a transcription in modern spelling. The first letter, dated 15 June 1650 and addressed to Jacques Dupuy in Paris deals i.a. with the polemic Claude Saumaise carried on against Grotius after the latter's death. It is preserved in the Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris, Collection Dupuy 803, fos. 354r.-355v. The other letter is kept in the British Library, MS Harleian 7012, fo. 186r. It is an aide-mémoire intended for Isaac Vossius, then residing at the court of Queen Christina of Sweden. In it Maria van Reigersberch repeats some questions that had remained unanswered. Reference is made i.a. to Grotius's Historia Gotthorum, edited by Isaac Vossius and only published posthumously-probably not without reason in 1655 by Louis Elsevier., The correspondence of Maria van Reigersberch (1589-1653), wife of Hugo de Groot, was published in 1902.
