About Ibrahim Adehan/de Haan, b1

Abram de Haan is mentioned in the book "Hedge of Wild Almonds South Africa, the 'Pro-Boers' & the Quaker Conscience' by Hope Hay Hewison -

In a letter from John George Holtz dated 20 March 1728 to Banjamin Holme, a British Friend of York Monthly Meeting Holtz says of his contacts/meetings/conversations regarding the Quaker faith -

"Abram de Haan who is the Prince and .... these are freemen who dwell in the town with whom I have briefly conversed ...., these all converse with us and are convinced and the books of our ancient Friends were all acceptable to them ... In these books we have read we have come together or have been in silence waiting upon the Lord in our minds.

This suggests that Prince Ibrahim de Haan had some interest in the Quaker movement. CJB.
