Albertus C. Van Raalte informed the Classis of Holland on April 29, 1852, that he had received a letter from the Rev. J. J. Schepers written on February 18 which requests that the Classis install Schepers as pastor of the congregation. However, the congregation does not promise "to unite with the Albany denomination." But Van Raalte and the Classis feel that this congregation had no right to leave the congregation in Graafschap and without authorization appointed Schepers as pastor.
