"Imprimé en gros caractères. - Cet écrit se rattache à une polémique bizarre, qui passionna et tint divisés durant des années les plus fameux docteurs de l'église évangélique hollandaise. Le roi Louis XIII, qui portait toute sa chevelure, avait introduit et fait prévaloir la mode des cheveux longs. Cette innovation choqua bon nombre de ministres protestants. (...). Saumaise n'était pas homme à laisser passer une si belle occasion de déployer son érudition. Tout d'abord il se déclara le champion de la liberté des coiffures, et descendit dans l'arène armé du formidable factum dont nous avons transcrit le titre. (...). Tout cette érudition fut dépensée en pure perte. Le public resta indifférent. En dépit des objurgations et des anathèmes, la mode prévalut, et chacun continua à se coiffer à sa guise." (Willems).
