This account with the Plugger Store contains approximately the list of purchases for only six months. It too details what the family of Rev. and Mrs. Albertus C. Van Raalte needed from this general store. From this account and the previous one, one could pretty well know what the Van Raaltes ate and wore.
The original documents are held in the Albertus C. Van Raalte Collection (M300) or the Dirk B.K. Van Raalte Collection (M301) in Heritage Hall, Hekman Library, Calvin University, Grand Rapids, MI. The Van Raalte material in Heritage Hall has since been reorganized.
This digitized material is intended for personal research/study only. The original documents may not be reproduced for commercial use in any form or by any means, electronic or mechanical, without permission in writing from Heritage Hall at Calvin University. Contact the Curator at Heritage Hall.
