Get messages from a conversation

This snippet will get the most recent conversation and print the last 10 messages

// This is a synchronous client, that will block until the response arrive (or until timeout)
TelegramClient client = Kotlogram.getDefaultClient(application, new ApiStorage());

// How many messages we want to get (same than dialogs, there is a cap)
int count = 10;

// You can start making requests
try {
    TLAbsDialogs tlAbsDialogs = client.messagesGetDialogs(0, 0, new TLInputPeerEmpty(), 1);
    TLAbsInputPeer inputPeer = getInputPeer(tlAbsDialogs);

    TLAbsMessages tlAbsMessages = client.messagesGetHistory(inputPeer, 0, 0, 0, count, 0, 0);
    tlAbsMessages.getMessages().forEach(message -> {
        if (message instanceof TLMessage)
            System.out.println(((TLMessage) message).getMessage());
        else
            System.out.println("Service message");
    });
} catch (RpcErrorException | IOException e) {
    e.printStackTrace();
} finally {
    client.close(); // Important, do not forget this, or your process won't finish
}

Always very long with all those constructors...

public static TLAbsInputPeer getInputPeer(TLAbsDialogs tlAbsDialogs) {
