At a meeting of the consistory of the First Reformed Church at which Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte presided, the committee on church grounds reported that the work on the grounds were mainly completed. The drought and the lack of teams were holding up completion of the project. The expenses were almost covered. The membership of Mrs. [not Miss] Hendrika Zwaluwenberg Pieters was transferred to Drenthe [where her husband was now the minister]. "Brother Wilderdink requests enlightenment concerning I Corinthians 11:27. The chairman obliges to his complete satisfaction." A member of the congregation asked permission to switch from Dr. Ledeboer to Dr. van den Berg for medical treatment. Brother Plugger was appointed to handle this delicate situation.
