Physical Description
A. L. S. 4 pp. 4o
Description
He earnestly wishes the prosperity of the Dutch church; the timely adoption of the English language would have preserved among them many of their chief families; a brotherly connection between their teachers, and effective measures for educating divines among themselves would have made the church flourish; in the recent assembly of divines and elders, sixty-two congregations united and signed the articles drawn up last fall and approved since by the Classis; they decided not to interfere in the affair of Dr. [Hermanus] Meyer at Kingston; he thinks it inadvisable to bring the dispute into the civil courts, and recommends arbitration; the unhappy affair of the Queen of Denmark and the Count de Struensee is not yet determined.
