In the local news column of De Hollander, it was reported that Rev. Giles van de Wall had preached last Sunday at the First Reformed Church in the continued absence of its pastor, Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte. Two letters were also read to the congregation. One was from Van Raalte and the other from Rev. Jacob Chamberlain, M.D., who had been in Holland at the Fourth of July picnic to speak at the Sunday School celebration. Chamberlain was now on his way to India. The congregation heard the second part of van de Wall's sermon in the afternoon service. All were much edified by his messages.
