Letters From Immigrants in America

Written by Herbert J. Brinks

After arriving in America, the first Dutch immigrants mailed detailed reports of their experience to family and friends in their mother country. ... The author was able to locate ... about 1400 (of these) immigrant letters ... a majority in the attics, cupboards, and bookshelves of private homes and farms. Without his efforts, these reports would not have been available for public examination.... 

This book attempts to provide some essential background for the correspondence by immigrants from the Netherlands, while allowing them to speak for themselves. Brinks was able to find letters from every major Dutch-American settlement in the U.S.A. He also published the more extensive, now out-of-print, 'Dutch American Voices' .
