Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte, elders H. Broek, Hekhuis, Wilterdink, Broersma, and Labot, and deacons, A. de Weerd, Wilterdink, Plugger, v/d Berg, and Keppel were present a this meeting of the Consistory of the First Reformed Church. Van Raalte asked the members how he would write on the spiritual condition of the congregation because the annual report of the denomination called for this information. The elders and deacons were somewhat pessimistic about the current state of affairs but V.R. felt that he could write many good things on this subject. The consistory members were still troubled about Doesburg's paper.
