At the proposed meeting of the Consistory of the First Reformed Church, Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte was to have read the text of the letter which was to be sent to "Brother Doesburg," editor of De Hollander. But the issue did not refer to his publication but to his son, Jacob, who allegedly stole items from the Post' store. The son is summoned to meet the Consistory "in the catechism room" of the church at 5.30 p.m. on this date. No one came to the meeting because no real charge was brought against Jacob according to his father. The issue had also been resolved.
