Article in the Christian Intelligencer
Mention by Hyma of an article which appeared in the Christian Intelligencer, written by the Rev. A. B. Taylor, of Grand Rapids, who was also very helpful to Van Raalte and his people. Hyma published an excerpt of this article on pp. 143-144. This is the letter of the oft-quoted statements: There is now, and has been for some time, a most painful state of want among these devoted brethren. Their provisions have failed them, and some have been subsisting on bran.
