At this meeting of the School Board of the Holland Academy, the principal, Rev. Philip Phelps. Jr. was present but Dr. Albertus C. Van Raalte was not. In the absence of the president, Rev. Roelof Pieters, took the chair. It was noted in Article 7 that "Rev. Ph. Phelps would take on his own responsibility, the books on hand, to be sold by him, in retail, to the students, which would relieve the Board of a present debt of about $ 104." The photocopy of these minutes are poor because the paper on which they were written was dark.
