A Mr. A. Wormser wrote out a receipt that reads as follows: "Rec'd of Rev. Dr. Van Raalte, out of trust moneys for relief, twenty five dollars (per Rev. P. Phelps) the same being intended to apply on my [Wormser's?] account with Mr. J. Binnekant and to release him from the debt to me to the amount [of] twenty five dollars. (Duplicate receipt given by Mr. Binnekant.)" The text of the receipt is not clear without more documentary evidence.
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.
