[Letter to the editor.]
In: De Bazuin 23 (1875), no. 1, January 1, 1875.
Dated: Den Haag, December 23, 1874.

A letter to the editor, with the heading “Een kort protest!” [A short protest!], in response to an article in De Bazuin, no. 51, December 18, 1874 in which the Anti-Revolutionary faction in the Second Chamber was accused of not having consulted with the leaders of the Christian Reformed Church regarding legislation that affected their church. In the interest of fairness and legal equity, I.L.C. van den Berch van Heemstede, an Anti-Revolutionary member of Parliament, had introduced an amendment to the national budget of 1875 to raise the expenditures of the Ministry of Finance by approximately ƒ100,000. This would enable the government to subsidize the salaries of pastors from the Christian Reformed Church if such subsidies were requested (cf. 1874.08).

Kuyper now writes that he requested information in a timely manner from the lecturers of the Theological Seminary of Kampen with debate about this amendment in mind. After deliberation, however, the Kampen lecturers had let it be known that they did not consider themselves competent in this matter.
