Heidelberg, Holland, June, 1857


The great calamity of Holland is pauperism, and somewhat more than 30 years ago a benevolent societ was formed for the purpose...

The colony thus established has noe increased to a considerable community, yet it has made, I suppose, as much impression upon the vast mass of pauperism in Holland, as the Colonization Society has made upon the mass of slavery in the United States.
