A letter of Albertus C. Van Raalte to Theodore Romeyn, inviting Romeyn to stay with the Van Raaltes when he visits Holland. V.R. has very fond remembrances of all the help he gave when the Van Raaltes wintered in Detroit in 1846-47. "We [Van Raalte and his wife] both remember yet, with deep feeling and thank[s] to God our kind father and to you, all the kindniss [sic] shown to us at the time when we were helpless strangers in a strange land. You were to us like an angel of God."
