"Meetings with the Prince, letters for the Prince, questions to the Prince? Via Vernede. He deliberated, he weighed. He knew how to present the messages, deliver them. It's a given: the messenger, that's what it's all about... He was loyal, "thought" that he was rarely mistaken. As a human being he was an extension of the other, serving, loyal, modest and yet himself. A personality, loyalty to the Fatherland, loyalty to the Prince, loyalty to, ... just fill in. The Prince is coming. The Prince is present. The Prince is going on a journey. Vernede comes along. A commitment of thirty years. Some kind of marriage?"
