On this date, a letter to Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte from "N[o] N[ame]" was published in De Hollander stating that this person sent a gift of three dollar to V.R. for the spread of the gospel "among the blind heathen." Even this small gift may be instrumental in the Lord's hands to save "one poor soul." V.R. designated one dollar for Home Missions, one for Foreign Missions, and one for the education of ministers. The letter to V.R. was dated 8 February 1857 and came from "B...., Wisconsin."
