A notice was published by Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte on this date in De Hollander calling for prayers for the academies, high schools, and colleges in America. V.R. wants the local community to join in this national movement. "That the educated understanding and the talent of the nation, to which the management of affairs naturally falls, may be led by the Lord, is of the greatest interest to the nation, church and school." V.R. brought this notice to the paper on 9 February.
