The Governor of Overijssel Province wrote the Mayor of Ommen that he heard that the Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte had been released. His arrest had not been based on legal grounds although Van Raalte was thought to have been imprudent. The Governor is sending a detachment of fifty military men with their officers who will be billeted in Ommen homes "without distinguishing religious affiliation."
