    Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Gustaf Baeckström in Stockholm, Sweden. Baeckstrom’s letter about his visit to Oslo and Northern Sweden has sparked interest in Bryn Athyn. Pendleton wishes they could send Baeckstrom an assistant, but first Baeckstrom needs to send a young man to study for the ministry in Bryn Athyn. Pendleton approves of the steps Baeckstrom took in bringing together a small group of New Church people, including Mrs. Hartman and the Boysen family, after his lecture in Oslo; Pendleton hopes that this group will establish the Church permanently in Norway, first as a Norwegian Swedenborg Association with a book library, and later as a New Church Society for divine worship. Pendleton hopes Baeckstrom’s next trip to Oslo will be as successful as his last. In Bryn Athyn, they are preparing for the mid-year meetings.
