Description

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.

About the collection:

Elton J. Bruins, long-time professor in the Department of Religion at Hope College, spent years collecting documents by and about Albertus C. Van Raalte, founder of Holland, Michigan and early patron of Hope College. Documents were gathered from dozens of public and private collections, making a nearly exhaustive collection of Van Raalte's writings and reflections. It is these documents that make up the "Van Raalte Papers."

Digitizing the Van Raalte papers was supported by the Dutch Culture USA program by the Consulate General of the Netherlands in New York. The project was done in partnership with Heritage Hall at Calvin University, which also digitized its Van Raalte collections.
