William Van Putten, Druggist and Apothecary, and Proprietor of Dr. Van Den Verg's Family Medicines, received payment of the bill in the account of "Dr. A. C. Van Raalte" in the amount of $35.50. The bill covered the dates of 4 February 1876 through 3 October 1876. Interestingly enough, very few of the items are medicines but mainly for the costs of turpentine, paints, and varnishes that indicate that work on the Van Raalte home was progressing the very year that Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte becomes very ill and departs this life 7 November 1876.
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.
