A letter of Albertus C. Van Raalte to Paulus den Bleyker, in Kalamazoo, about several business matters. V.R. had hoped he would have come to Holland to get the papers V.R. is now sending but he had not come. In the course of the letter, V.R. refers to advice his father gave him: Boy, do well and never look back. The business arrangements with denb. appear to be unraveling. V.R. still hopes that the denbleykers will come to the Colony but V.R. is quite direct in some of his comments about denb.'s business ideas.
