A letter of A. C. Van Raalte to Philip Phelps, responding to Phelps' request that he accept an appointment by the Council to raise funds for the endowment. A.C.V.R. is reluctant, however, to leave "the Virginia Settlement." It would cause disappointment there and besides "I consider it to be my missionary work which I am not allowed to part with."
Amelia C. H., Va.
