On this date, a report on the Holland Classis appeared in The Christian Intelligencer. The meeting was held in Grand Haven Michigan; Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte presided. "The reports of the churches were generally encouraging, though no special revival could be named." Rev. John Van Vleck's membership was transferred to the Classis of Kingston. Elder J. [Van] de Luyster of Zeeland reported that ten families had lost their possessions in the recent fire and Christian sympathy was commended to the congregations who were directed to take offerings for them.
