A copy of a letter of A.C.V.R. to Gilman Chase regarding property matters. The letter is difficult to read even though A.C.V.R. wrote in English. Apparently he hastily made a copy of the original letter. Therefore, his handwriting is not in the usual clear style of most of his writings. The letter needs to be "deciphered" in order to be useful for research.
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.
