An article appeared in De Hollander on this date with the title,"Wat men te Holland, in Michigan, ten opzigte van opvoeding, onderwijs en aankweeking van wetenschap alzoo doet." Or, "What is being done in Holland, Michigan, in regard to education, instruction and the development of learning." The writer of the essay gives a very good picture of the educational ventures in the Colony but also of church life including the development of singing school. The document is a good source for information about education in early Holland, Michigan. The Pioneer School or Academy is here referred to as a Latin School.
The original documents are held in the Holland Museum.
