When we was nippers in the 1960s, and living in England, one of the high points of coming to Ireland to visit the rellies was the chance to scoff a Fudge Cream Urney Bar [bottom L] unobtainable in Haslemere or Portsmouth.
That would be: Denthe, Friesland, Gelderland, Groningen, Holland, Overijssel, Utrecht, Zeeland. Duh, I can count: that's eight provinces. Yes, yes, but Drenthe was too poor to pay taxes and so was unrepresented in the States General.  No representation without taxation!
