A letter of Albertus C. Van Raalte to Paulus den Bleyker, of Kalamazoo, concerning money and business matters again. Apparently V.R. is trying to get den Bleyker to invest in the Colony because V.R. is "convinced that your capital can be doubled..." Land that borders the lake is very valuable, V.R. believes. These matters must be kept secret, however.
