At a meeting of the consistory of the First Reformed Church at which Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte presided and at which Elder Gerrit Wakker served as clerk, a man came to consistory to ask baptism for his children but he and his wife were not members of the church. The issue was clarified by asking him to take instruction, be received into membership with his wife, and then asking for baptism for the children. A member under discipline asked to have his membership transferred to the "Scottish congregation" on the south side of Holland.
