The loot included $40 of Church funds, (Mr. Hopper is Treasurer of the Reformed Church.) 2 gold watches, a pair of eyeglasses, some clothing and 2 nearly new Remington bicycles. Since the bikes have very visible hubs they will be easily recovered. The thieves also took two hats leaving their own old ones. The family was alsleep in the upper floor and did not hear the thieves. The Church Consistory voted to help him make up the lost Church money.
