RONDE, Lambertus de, clergyman, born in Holland in the 18th century, tie was pastor of Dutch Reformed churches in Surinam, British Guiana, in 1746, New York and Harlem in 1751-'84, and Sehaghtieoke in 1784-'95. In 1749 he proposed to the classis to publish a book of first truths in Negro-English and Dutch. The classis requested him to transmit it to them for approved, and in 1751 complained that he had been installed over the church of New York without their knowledge, and that he had signed the letter of the coetus without any explanation of his new relationships He became a member of the conferentic party after the disruption in 1755, and was never absent from their meetings. Though he was one of the committee that procured Dr. Laidlie to preach in English, he afterward turned against him, and was the leading spirit in the "Dutch party" in the famous lawsuit that grew out of this matter Many were determined not to submit to the innovation of English preaching. The " Dutch party" lost the suit and paid £300 costs. During the Revolution, De Ronde preached in Schaghtieoke, New York, and in 1780 represented the churches of Red Hook and Saugerties in the classis of Kingston His publications are "De gekruisige Christus, als het voornaemste toeleg van Gods gebrofiwe Krinsgesanten, in hunne prediking," or "The Christ Crucified as the Principal Subject of God's Faithful Servants of the Cross in their Sermons" (New York, 1751); "De ware gedaehniss," an account of the death of the Reverend Gualterus Du Bois (New York, 1751) ; "A System containing the Principles of the Christian Religion Suitable to the Heidelberg Catechism" (1763). This is the first book published in the English language by a member of the Reformed Dutch church in America. It was prepared before the call of Laidlie, to meet the growing necessity for instruction in English, and De Ronde offered to preach in English if the consistory thought him qualified. He also published " True Spiritual Religion" (New York, 1767), and numerous "Letters to Holland."
