Elder Kamper was chosen chairman of the consistory meeting of the First Reformed Church at which Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte was not present. The clerk, Gerrit Wakker, reported that the censure was not read in church last Sunday upon instruction of the committee that was dealing with this person. The man admitted his guilt and hoped to improve his behavior. The consistory wished to ascertain the correct number of members and would request the pastor to be present at the next meeting.
