Letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Albert Bjorck, 1926-10-29

Identifier: RG.004.01

Scope and Contents

Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Albert Bjorck in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. Pendleton is interested in Bjorck’s account of his visit to Sweden and England, especially his impressions of Mr. Baeckstrom’s work in Sweden, Baeckstrom having been the first to establish any kind of permanent New Church society in Stockholm. Pendleton is happy to hear Bjorck’s report of the Colchester Assembly, particularly in view of the recent disturbances which resulted in the dissolution of the Peckham Rye group. Bjorck has asked for Pendleton’s advice on where he should relocate; Pendleton is inclined to recommend England because his presence would bring back “something of the state of intellectual interest which existed, especially in London, in connection with the New Church club there, prior to your leaving and Mr. Ottley’s death.” Pendleton thinks that the Swedish book Bjorck intends to write could be a good opportunity to present the Swedish public with a well-considered statement on essential General Church doctrines. Names mentioned: Mr. Ottley, Mr. Gyllenhaal, Mr. Tilson, Mrs. Bjorck
