A letter of Henry D. Post to Van Raalte apparently. The content of the letter deals solely with the religious feelings of Post who is explaining why he is not more open in the expression of his Christian faith. Post concludes his letter, saying, "I thank you for your kind feelings for me, and hope you may yet see your prayers in my behalf answered."
