A letter of Albertus C. Van Raalte to Paulus den Bleyker, of Kalamazoo, concerning several matters. One matter is the possible purchase of a house for den Bleyker. V.R. is also writing about the possibility of den B.'s establishing a brick making operation in the Holland area. V.R. reported that at a recent Peoples' Assembly meeting, the village decided to raise taxes for the building of bridges and roads. Volunteers will do the road work. Unfortunately, V.R. and his wife are too busy to visit the den Bleykers in Kalamazoo. "It appears to me sometimes that my duties are too much."
