Rev. Mancius Smedes Hutton, secretary of the Board of Education of the Reformed Protestant Dutch Church, addressed the General Synod of the church because Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte requested that "certain young men" be allowed to receive their theological education at the Holland Academy rather than attend Rutgers College. The board is passing this request on to the synod because it does not have the authority to act on this matter. Hutton also reminded the synod that the churches need to be much more generous to the board if all the young men requesting aid can be helped in their education for the ministry.
