Letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Albert Bjorck, 1923-03-26
Scope and Contents
Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Albert Bjorck in Bath, England. Pendleton has received Bjorck’s letter of Feb. 6th with enclosed correspondence between Bjorck and Mr. Gyllenhaal. Pendleton presumes that the question at issue between them has been settled by now. Pendleton reports that there has been no decision yet about Bjorck attending the Glenview General Assembly; The Church runs on charity, and currently it seems they will not be able to spare the money to pay for Bjorck to attend. Pendleton has sent Mr. Gyllenhaal the authority to call an Assembly this summer hosted by the Burton Road Society. Pendleton discusses the lack of the appearance of episcopal government in England; He writes, “does it not stand to reason that you who are on the ground can best decide how to handle this or that matter?” He wants the three priests in England to work together with a sense of mutual responsibility. Pendleton apologizes for not clearly stating his approval of the last Assembly; In Bryn Athyn, they heard many rumors of difficulties and failures. Pendleton sends greetings to Mr. Tilson and Mr. Gyllenhaal.
