In: Amsterdamsche Kerkbode. Officieel orgaan van de Nederduitsche Gereformeerde Kerk (doleerende) 1 (1887), no. 32, September 11, 1887.
Dated: Amsterdam, September 9, 1887.

In this article Kuyper writes about the terminations announced at the eight diaconal schools in Amsterdam. After the Doleantie the Consistory of the Dutch Reformed Congregation of Amsterdam retained control of the eight diaconal schools in Amsterdam. The consistory decided to terminate all personnel who had gone over to the Dutch Reformed Church (doleerende), effective December 31, 1887. Kuyper reports that as of January 1, 1888 the fired personnel would continue their work at five new schools, for which locations had already been found. He also notes that the formation of these new schools would again require financial sacrifices from the congregation (cf. 1888.07).

A circular letter, dated Amsterdam, October 1887, invited parents to move their children to the new schools. The circular letter was signed by the board of the School Commission: A. Kuyper, chairman, W. Hovy, treasurer, and J.A. Wormser, secretary.
