On 17 January, the Holland merchant, H. Walsh, noted that Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte's bill of $31.29 was paid although the document is dated 16 January. The items purchased by Van Raalte dated from 4 May 1871 to 19 December 1871. Items purchased were for prescriptions, castor oil, bourbon, liniment, cologne, castile soap, bitters, etc. Some of the items listed on the bill may have been intended for Mrs. Van Raalte who, at this time, was very ill.
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.
