Letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Albert Bjorck, 1929-03-07

Identifier: RG.004.01

Scope and Contents

Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Albert Bjorck in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. Pendleton finds Bjorck’s letter to Hans Giobel informative; Perhaps Giobel will change his mind in the next several years, and in the meantime, Pendleton will keep the house open for him in Bryn Athyn. In August, Pendleton and his wife will sail from New York and join Mr. and Mrs. Theodor Pitcairn in France on their way to visit the General Church mission in South Africa. Pendleton regrets that Bishop Tilson has not continued his correspondence with Bjorck, as they should have mutual interest in the affairs of the New Church in England. In Bryn Athyn, they are planning for an Assembly hall for the 1930 General Assembly. The building is intended to serve the joint uses of the Society and Academy. While this is much more economical, there was some feeling that “the Society was being too much bound to the Academy chariot.” The joint proposal has now been approved by the Academy and Society, but Pendleton thinks it may take time for the “aroused feelings to simmer down.” Names Mentioned: Hans Giobel, Mrs. (Beatrice) Pendleton, Theodore Pitcairn, Maryke Pitcairn, Bishop R.J. Tilson, Mrs. Bjorck
