At a meeting of the consistory of the First Reformed Church at which Rev. Albertus C. Van RaaIle presided and also served as clerk, a pastoral problem was dealt with and the cost of the pillars was discussed. The company would receive interest on the unpaid balance. Elder Broek requested permission that the children in his district be catechized by an elder because it was often too far to attend classes taught by the pastor. The elders can do this on Sunday afternoons and also read a sermon in the school.
