A letter of A.C.V.R. to Teunis Keppel about the upcoming 25th anniversary of the settlement of the Colony. A.C.V.R. is protesting the fact that Zeeland is going ahead on its own and having its celebration apparently apart from the Holland celebration. A.C.V.R. is very hurt by this turn of affairs and blames this move on "those curse-deserving envious and angry ones who so continuously tear apart the body."
The original documents are held in the Albertus C. Van Raalte Collection (M300) or the Dirk B.K. Van Raalte Collection (M301) in Heritage Hall, Hekman Library, Calvin University, Grand Rapids, MI. The Van Raalte material in Heritage Hall has since been reorganized.
