Description

A letter of Thomas De Witt, a pastor in the Collegiate Church to a Rev. Elias Heiner of Baltimore "per Rev. H. P. Scholte" [which may account for the fact that the letter stayed in Pella], to whom De Witt commends Scholte and the need of his people. "The expected emigrants from Holland" are coming into the Baltimore harbor, I assume.

Description of the document and reference to Central College by Dr. Elton J. Bruins.

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."
