In De Zondagsbode he published articles on the Anslo family (XII, Nos. 16-21), on Rembrandt (XIX, Nos. 35-41), and particular­ly on "Het Menniste Zusje" (XV, Nos. 42-52, and XVI, Nos. 1-10). Of this "Het Menniste Zusje" an enlarged and illustrated edition was published in Verslag Koninklijke Oudheidkundig Genootschap, 1913.
