A letter in which Kuyper resigns as a member of Parliament. Written to the chairman of the Second Chamber, the letter (p. 1227) was read aloud during the April 17, 1877 meeting of the chamber. Three days earlier, Kuyper had returned from a very lengthy absence from the Netherlands. He had gone abroad to recover from a serious case of nervous exhaustion (see 1875.08). In his letter Kuyper writes that his recovery will take longer. He cites this as the reason for his request for resignation and suggests that his resignation take effect on June 1, 1877—a favorable date for the electoral district of Gouda because the interim election would then take place simultaneously with the election cycle for the Second Chamber. Kuyper received an honorable discharge from his office on July 1, 1877.

This letter was also published in De Standaard 6 (1877), no. 1557, April 21, 1877.
