At a meeting of the consistory of the First Reformed Church at which Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte presided, consistory voted to raised the pastor's salary to $800 per year of which $100 was for housing.

This was not agreed to; rather the subject would be taken up at the next congregational meeting.
