Minutes of the Meeting of the Classis of Holland
Minutes of the meeting of the Classis of Holland held at Zeeland, with the Rev. Peter J. Oggel, presiding, and the Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte, Clerk. There was considerable discussion whether the Rev. Hendrik P. Scholte should be allowed to preach in the the churches of the Classis. The matter was left to the individual congregation to make the decision. The Rev. John Van Vleck can be examined by the Classis now because he has learned enough Dutch. The members of the Classis will now be able to understand what he says.
