Definition
Informal reference to The Netherlands (confusion arises because important provinces in The Netherlands are North Holland and South Holland).
  • They came across the ocean from England and Scotland or over from Holland and up from Pennsylvania, and they cajoled the Indians, sometimes shot them, took the woods and the sloping meadowland and made an Eden out of it—and then moved on.
    9 — "Like a robber, I shall proceed according to my will." (48% in)
  • And those who were guiltless of the cruel invasion came in behind them and bought from the Holland Land Office with honest cash, nursed what remained of the Indian nations, the old ones, the drunk and spineless, too sick of body and soul for defiance, much less flight, and they possessed the milk-and-honey land and were known for highborn saints.
    9 — "Like a robber, I shall proceed according to my will." (49% in)
