A letter of Thomas De Witt, of the Collegiate Church, New York City, to Hendrik P. Scholte. Since Van Raalte's arrival with his group, there have been three more arrivals, two of which have more than one hundred emigrants and the third, about thirty. One ship was named the Isabella. De Witt shows much concern about these people because of their arrival during the winter season. De Witt seems to have developed a fairly close relationship with Scholte.
