Utrecht (1731). 20pp.
Emanuel Valk (1697-1732) was minister in Velzen (1723-1730) and later in Vianen. In 1730, he was suspected of sodomy and resigned from his church and moved to Utrecht, where he wrote pamphlets about his case. In 1732, he was arrested in Utrecht and handed over to the police of Vianen, where he subsequently committed suicide in his cell. The 'Letter to a friend' contains copies of the summons of 27 August 1731 and the sentence of 19 November the same year. The second work listed is signed by the author opposite the title page.
