Description

A letter of A. C. Van Raalte to Philip Phelps in which he expresses his disagreement for the apparent support of the Union School, as action he deems dangerous to the support of Hope College. "This Christian Community is rightly served on their dearest interest to become an appendix only to a political caucus....As long as people dance around the school-board you can do nothing with them."

About the collection:

Elton J. Bruins, long-time professor in the Department of Religion at Hope College, spent years collecting documents by and about Albertus C. Van Raalte, founder of Holland, Michigan and early patron of Hope College. Documents were gathered from dozens of public and private collections, making a nearly exhaustive collection of Van Raalte's writings and reflections. It is these documents that make up the "Van Raalte Papers."
