A news note in De Hollander said that Hoyt G. Post's position would be taken by someone else. "We cannot tell if this transfer will be beneficial for the Colony. This is what we know: Hoyt G. Post has done many good things for our Settlement and has always been of great assistance to our non-English speaking Dutch when they had to deal with court cases and other issues."
The original documents are held in the Holland Museum.

About the collection:
Elton J. Bruins, long-time professor in the Department of Religion at Hope College, spent years collecting documents by and about Albertus C. Van Raalte, founder of Holland, Michigan and early patron of Hope College. Documents were gathered from dozens of public and private collections, making a nearly exhaustive collection of Van Raalte's writings and reflections. It is these documents that make up the "Van Raalte Papers."
Digitizing the Van Raalte papers was supported by the Dutch Culture USA program by the Consulate General of the Netherlands in New York. The project was done in partnership with Heritage Hall at Calvin University, which also digitized its Van Raalte collections.
