A letter of Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte to Mr. J. P. Oggel of Axel, Zeeland, whose son, Pieter J., is a student in the Arnhem school. Van Raalte is impressed with young Pieter. He reported to Pieter's father that he "spent his time faithfully and makes good progress. I trust that when the Lord spares his life he will become a very useful instrument for God's kingdom with further development!" Van Raalte also thanked Oggel for the generous offering for the school from the Axel congregation.
