IMG 1492The Corts Foundation and Arsip Nasional Republik Indonesia will present a book on diplomatic letters from the Dutch Archives on a seminar in Bangkok on November 14th 2016. These letters are a small example of the correspondence between the kingdom of Siam (present day Thailand) and the Castle of Batavia (formerly present at Jakarta, Indonesia) in the 17th and 18th centuries. Some letters found in the series 'Dagregisters' were studied by Dutch and Thai historians and published with the support of the Dutch Embassy in Bangkok.

The Corts Foundation would like to commemorate the late king Bhumipol of Thailand. We sympathise with our partners in Thailand working with us on the Diplomatic Letters Project and pay our respect to the late king and the period of mourning that is visible everywhere in Thailand.
