  • Scope and Contents

    Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Elmo C. Acton in Durban, Natal, South Africa. Acton's letter and report arrived in time to be included in the report of the Secretary of the Ministers' Council. They were enjoyed by Pendleton and Acton's parents. Pendleton writes that Acton must be patient with efforts to establish a New Church school in Durban. For now it remains the school of Miss Champion, who is reportedly doing good work. Eventually the soceity will take it over, but this process should not be rushed. Acton should continue teaching religion in the school. Pendleton recommends sermons be about twenty minutes, but this does not have to be precise. The February meetings in Bryn Athyn have been "intensely interesting." Pendleton ends the letter with best wishes to Acton, Acton's wife Ione, and all friends in Durban.
