Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte paid a lumber bill on this date at Boone & Co. in the amount of $63.54. Jan de Vries signed the statement. The bill was for 6,190 board feet of lumber of pine and hemlock. There was no indication why Van Raalte purchased so much lumber unless it was possibly for the enlargement of the Van Raalte home.
