This item is a fragment of a document that is hard to read. Evidently it is a first draft of a letter of petition possibly to the State of Michigan requesting funds for the harbor improvement project. The handwriting is very similar to that of Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte.
The original documents are held in The Joint Archives of Holland.
