Letter to the General Consistory of the Dutch Reformed Congregation of Amsterdam, in which Kuyper declines a pastoral call. On March 16, 1874, Kuyper had been given an honorable pension in connection with his election to the Second Chamber (see 1874.03). However, Kuyper had been forced to resign as a member of Parliament for reasons of health in 1877 (see 1877.03). He now writes that although he is gradually regaining his strength, he is prohibited from accepting this call by explicit doctor’s orders.

For an earlier declining of a pastoral call, see 1994.04.
