This is the first model created by the Utrecht Archives. It is based on a thousand letters of Margaretha Turnor, who wrote to her husband during the late 17th century. She managed the castle of Amerongen, while her husband worked abroad as a diplomat for the Dutch Republic. Her letters provide an insight into family life in the Dutch Republic as well as the political situation in the country. About 36 000 words had been trained for this model and the CER on the validation set is 1,83%.
