Instead of meeting the third Monday in January as was noted in the November congregational meeting minutes, the congregation met this day. Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte opened the meeting with prayer. A trio of candidates was formed consisting of Rev. B. [sic; must have meant A.] Brummelkamp, Rev. ten Bokkel and Rev. Winters. The total votes cast numbered 106. A committee was appointed to look into the matters of a parsonage and salary.
