At a meeting of the consistory of the First Reformed Church at which Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte presided, offered the opening prayer, and served as the clerk, friends of Abraham Krabshuis presented a letter protesting the laxity of the consistory. The writers, J. Hogenhorst and J. Piljzer, have been barred from the Lord's table because of their bitter spirit. They have requested transfer of membership to the Scottish church. Van Raalte suggested that two extensions be built for the Lord's table in the new church. After some discussion about the salvation of children dying in infancy, the meeting was closed with prayer by Broek.
