A letter of Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte to the Hon. Jacob Howard, Attorney General, protesting the decision of the court in Allegan that the majority who seceded from the Graafschap congregation in 1857 are allowed to put the building up for sale and pay the minority only a proportion of the proceeds. The minority in the Graafschap church were allowed to keep their property. The letter is signed by Albertus C. Van Raalte and four members of the Graafschap congregation who stayed with the Reformed Church: A. J.[?] Neerken, Geert Heneveld, Herman Garvelink, and Harmannus Strabbing.
