A series of three articles which appeared in the Holland City News, by Gerrit Van Schelven, entitled, "Historical Sketch of Holland City and Colony." These are valuable articles because Van Schelven was very interested in the history of the Holland colony. He later published much in his paper, De Grondwet, on the Holland colony. He also organized the 25th anniversary celebration in 1872. Since these articles were printed just before Van Raalte's death, Van Schelven must have felt that his material was correct.
The original documents are held in The Joint Archives of Holland.
