Letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Elmo C. Acton, 1934-02-21

Identifier: RG.004.01

Scope and Contents

Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Elmo C. Acton in Durban, Natal, South Africa. Pendleton acknowledges Acton's letter of January 9th. Pendleton sees The Hague doctrines as more than a fallacy; As he wrote in his paper to the ministers at the Midyear Meetings, he believes they are dangerous and alien to the General Church and Academy principles. Pendleton's paper, along with an opposing paper by Mr. (Albert) Bjork and the following discussion, will be printed in the May issue of the New Church Life. Pendleton is glad to hear that there has not been any disturbance in the Durban society over The Hague issue, as few people there are interested in the new doctrines. Pendleton has received a cable about an episcopal visit and assembly in Durban next summer. Pendleton is in favor, if the finances can be arranged. Miss (Jennie) Gaskill has arrived in Bryn Athyn, but Pendleton has not seen her yet as she has been ill. Pendleton hopes she will reconsider and decide to teach in Australia, because if not, the school there may be discontinued for the present.
