A letter of Albertus C. Van Raalte to Paulus den Bleyker, of Kalamazoo, in which V.R. understands that den Bleyker wants his loan? repaid by V.R. soon but that V.R. is now unable to refund the moneys he owes him. Apparently den B. has not given up the idea of coming to the Colony but it appears that the possibility is more remote now. V.R. asks him to extend his goodwill and not press for repayment at this time.
