Letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Karl R. Alden, 1920-11-18
Scope and Contents
Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Karl R. Alden in Toronto, Canada. General Church letterhead, copy attached. Pendleton is happy that Alden's work in Toronto is going well and that the people there are responding positively to Miss Alice (Grant?). Nothing will be more beneficial to Alden's work long term than a school, but Alden must make sure the conditions are right before attempting to start one. Pendleton warns that Miss Celia Bellinger does not have quite as positive an outlook as Miss Alice had in her letter to Mr. (Charles?) Doering. However, Bellinger reports that Alden's Sunday school has been very effective in indoctrinating young people. Pendleton agrees with Alden that (Emil) Cronlund's long service to the Chruch is probably what differentiates his case from those of Messrs. Gladish, Klein, Stebbing, etc., but thinks that there has also been a slow growth of the "community idea" (i.e. socialism) over the past 20 years. Ernst Pfeiffer is very well liked by the Advent society, and they have carried on their affairs as usual.
