Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte wrote out two receipts for gifts he received for the sufferers of loss in the Holland fire, both signed by Gerrit Van Schelven, treasurer. The gift of Holland Church, Rochester, New York, for $75.00 was sent to Van Raalte by Rev. P. B. Bahler. The other receipt recorded the gift of $5.00 from a Mr. Tibbe in Chicago and $10 from a Rev. H. Fris of New York.
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.
