A printed flyer asking potential donors to loan money to the Holland colonists in order to complete the harbor project in the amount of $2,000. $9000 has already been raised. The state government has already assigned a tract of land to support the project. The list of six men whose names appear at the bottom of the document is headed by the name of Isaac N. Wyckoff, pastor of Second Reformed Church. It is likely that he wrote the materials.
Albany, [New York]
