A long letter of Derk [?] and Louise Arnaud to "dearly beloved pastors," presumably to Antonie Brummelkamp and Albertus C. Van Raate because the Arnauds had just arrived in America from Arnhem, the Netherlands, giving the details of their sea journey and first experiences in America. Louise seems to be the writer of the letter because she wrote about Derk's experience as a carpenter in Boston.
