Wanted: Latin Text of Dort Church Order

I’m getting ready to do a series of six sessions for the Adult Class at Oceanside URC on the nature of the church, the supper, and the administration of the supper: “The True Church, The True Body, and the True Administration.” I have what I believe to be reliable English translation of Art. 61 of the Dort Church order but I would like to confirm it by looking at the Latin text. I have H. H. Kuyper’s edition of the Post-Acta but he doesn’t give every article of the CO. Please leave a comment if you can give me a lead.

Update: Okay, I found my copy of P. Biesterveld and H. H. Kuiper, ed. Kerkelijk Handboekje (Kampen, 1905) with the Dutch text of the Church Order. The question remains, however, if the Acta and Post-Acta of the Synod are in Latin it would seem that the CO should have been in Latin also, but perhaps it was not.
