A report on the state of the church was published in De Hollander on this date. The report is given by the "Committee on the Religious State of the Church." This report was presented at the General Synod of the Reformed Protestant Dutch Church which had met in Philadelphia in June. The report was preceded with an introduction by Rev. Pieter J. Oggel. (Is it likely that this report was translated and printed in the local paper due to the agitation created by B. Ploeg?)
The original documents are held in the Holland Museum.
