Description

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.

About the collection:

Elton J. Bruins, long-time professor in the Department of Religion at Hope College, spent years collecting documents by and about Albertus C. Van Raalte, founder of Holland, Michigan and early patron of Hope College. Documents were gathered from dozens of public and private collections, making a nearly exhaustive collection of Van Raalte's writings and reflections. It is these documents that make up the "Van Raalte Papers."
