In a letter of Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte to his brother-in-law, Rev. C. G. de Moen, Van Raalte sends cordial greetings. He also indicates that he expects de Moen to come to America sometime. Van Raalte and de Moen have discussed at length the pros and cons of de Moen's possible coming to America. "When you come, take a steamship, and do not travel like an immigrant." Van Raalte also ordered fifty diapers that Mrs. Van Raalte requested and he would like five little Dutch dictionaries.
