Letter from Albertus C. Van Raalte to Christina de Moen Van Raatle
A letter of Ds. Albertus C. Van Raalte, to his wife, Christina Johanna Van Raalte-de Moen. He reports that he preached in Den Ham last Saturday. He leaves for Dedemsvaart tomorrow, then on to Hellendoorn and the Rijseen area. A week from Tuesday he has to appear in court in Deventer. "Van Rees has told me that our soldiers are lodged with Jan van der Haar, and that a notification of our fine has arrived." A.C.V.R. hopes that his wife will not be discouraged because it is his call to preach even if he is fined for doing so. He has not heard further from his sister, Naaltje.
