Letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Gerrit Barger, 1916-07-08

Identifier: RG.004.01

Scope and Contents

Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Gerrit Barger in the Hague, Holland. Pendleton acknowledges Barger’s letters of March 21st and May 2nd with enclosed report from Mr. (Ernst) Deltenre. Much preparation was needed for the Assembly, but everyone in Bryn Athyn agrees that it was worth it. It ended up being the largest Assembly yet: 230 guests. There was a feeling of unity and encouragement for the future, and the questions which had been plaguing the Church “were brought as near to a solution as we could expect.” Pendleton was happy to hear of Deltenre’s continued work for the Church because they feared the War had interrupted his work. Barger’s son, Gerrit, has joined the Engineer Corp of the US Army and is stationed on the border of Texas and Mexico with four other boys from Bryn Athyn. Pendleton hopes the Great War will be over soon and the Church can resume its uses.
