Meeting of the Classis of Holland during which Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte was welcomed back "joyfully" from his trip to Pella, Iowa. V.R. also makes a report on the situation in Pella: 'He tells of a good consistory. The congregation has been freed from several debilitating elements. There is firmness in Reformed principles. The congregation has a good church building." The congregation just called Rev. Donner in the Netherlands to come and be the pastor at First Reformed Church.
