A letter of Albertus C. Van Raalte to Paulus den Bleyker, Kalamazoo, Michigan, in which Van Raalte expresses the desire to meet with den Bleyker. V.R. would be willing to go to Kalamazoo but hopes that den B. will come to Holland. There is scant information about what the men wish to discuss but V.R. gives a good picture of his piety and theological understanding of Providence. A Mr. Ransom is mentioned, likely Epaphroditus Ransom, one-time governor of the State of Michigan.
