All of the document of thirty pages is in Albertus C. Van Raalte's handwriting except pages 28-30. This is contrast with the Dorpslands Dagboek in the Calvin College archives, the Van Raalte collection, box 13, folder 218. That document of 35 pages is in another person's handwriting except for pages 34 and 35 which are in Van Raalte's handwriting. The major portion of this document is a record of land and property transactions concerning lots in the village of Holland. The document is also a record of many names of early Holland residents.
The original documents are held in the Holland Museum.
