Letter from A. C. Van Raalte to John Garretson
A letter of the Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte, responding to the letter of the Rev. John Garretson, dated August 10, in which A.C.V.R. expresses his joy for the gift to the Classis. Since the Board of Domestic Missions will defray the cost of hiring a pastor and teacher to visit neighboring places, V.R. suggests that the Rev. Huibert Jacobus Budding be called to this position, "being talented, having a disposition for, and having been frequently highly blessed therein. As he has been staying with us for some time, we have acquainted him with the state of affairs, and invited him to take charge of this field, which he has accepted, having already for some time been voluntarily engaged in this work."
