A letter to A. C. Van Raalte from his son, Ben. "You asked me what my opinion was about selling the land near Fijn etc. I cannot help you much and am not in touch with those things. Buying the swamplands might be a good thing and may work out all right if Albertus is happy with the mill. I am sometimes afraid that he feels like a man standing on ice -- unsteady. I personally do not like the mill business but, if it is handled right, a good living can be made at it."
