Identifier: RG.004.01

Scope and Contents

Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton to Alfred Acton in Sweden. Pendleton acknowledges Acton's last letter with appreciation. He discusses the case of Will Caldwell. A special Consistory meeting was called to address the case. Pendlton writes "Dispite his standing off from me, I have ever regarded him with affection, and while he finally turned upon me in the way you know, I cannot but feel that he was the victim of a temperament which would permit of no conciliation after the step was once taken." Pendleton has just retured from a trip to Pittsburgh for the laying of the cornerstone. He regrets Vincent's (no surname given) departure from the school and the affect that it will have. Rita (Buell) has recieved Acton's request to resume teaching in the Seminary, and it has been decided he will take over one of Hugo's (Odhner) classes. Pendleton will shortly depart for France on his way to South Africa. Eldred (Iungerich?) is excited about the work in Pittsburgh. Pendleton closes the letter by mentioning an upcoming meeting of the Son's of the Academy in Toronto.
