Rev. John Van Vleck, in a letter to the editor, reported in this issue of De Hollander that the congregations of Overijsel, Drenthe, and Graafschap supplied many provisions for the boarding students at the Holland Academy of which he was the Principal. Of the 42 enrolled students, 23 were boarding students at that time, (the year in which the academy building was completed). Money was scarce in those days but gifts of farm produce were a great help feeding the boarding students.
