  12. On June 18, 1874, however, Henry Hospers, who had been the founder of Pella's Weekblad, issued the first number of De Volksvriend, which "humbly made its bow and timidly took its place among the well-directed Dutch newspapers of America." The editor expressed himself further as follows:

    To accomplish our aims in issuing De Volksvriend demands more ability than we know we possess. Our purpose is great, our powers small! If we stop to consider the well-directed Dutch newspapers published in America, we hardly dare take up our pen; if we look at our beautiful Dutch language, so rich in expression as we :read it in our exchanges from The Netherlands, we take fright, for we have received a training more American than Dutch. We almost refuse to place our name at the top of this page as editor. But our purpose gives us courage; even if we feel unfit for the task, our purpose strengthens us. . .
    It is not to kick a little paper into the world for financial profit. But it is our aim to point out to our fellow Hollanders a magnificent spot of God's earth where there is plenty of opportunity, much promise, for many a Dutch household, where the Lord out of His grace, by the conversion of numerous persons, has shown He is well pleased, where there is abundant opportunity to train the rising generation. And now to make the facts known far and wide, to attract the attention of emigrants to our colony - to that end we shall devote De Volksvriend, we as well as others shall write articles, and we hope our fellow-colonists will help us spread De Volksvriend.
