Van Raalte, elders Jonker, Wilterdink, Labots, Appeldoorn, and Hekhuis and deacons Wilterdink, Keppel, and Plugger were present. They first dealt with a complaint of Grootehuis against Kooijers. There was concern expressed about the neglect of family visitation. Jonker explained the delay in the measuring of cemetery lots. The church in Grand Haven requested a classical preaching appointment. The disagreement between Van Raalte and elder Broek at the previous meeting of the consistory was clarified.
