Excerpts from the minutes of the Synod of the Christian Seceded Reformed Church of the Netherlands concerning the Van Raalte visit. A.C.V.R. makes an extensive address to the synod, explaining the union of the Classis of Holland with the Reformed Dutch Church and briefly hints at the reason for the 1857 Secession. He urges also a greater and reciprocal working relationship with the Dutch Gereformeerde Afgescheiden Kerk, for the sake of missions and for future emigrants to the U.S.A.
