A letter of E. van Unen to Waar de Broeder. A translated quote of the letter states: "Dominee Van Raalte visited us on Thursday and it was especially uplifting. The worthy continues to visit us and displays his loyalty as a servant of the Evangelie and is not ashamed to show his bond/ties with us." The rest of the letter is about how they are often fined and then jailed but they continue to struggle forward.
