Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Reginald W. Brown in Maseru, Basutoland, SA.
Pendleton has received Brown’s letters with enclosures. Pendleton supports Brown’s work in Basutoland, but worries that the more success he has there, the harder it will be for him to return to the Academy. The faculty is even more strained than Pendleton had anticipated; Mr. Acton is still away in Europe and will not be back for months. Pendleton advises Brown to prepare someone, possibly de Guymuller, to carry on the work in Basutoland once Brown leaves. There has been a rumor that Theo (Pitcairn) might return to Bryn Athyn, but in his letters to Pendleton, Pitcairn writes that he hopes to convert South Africa. In Bryn Athyn, they recently celebrated Charter Day with a “marching of colors” in the morning and a Tea Dance in the afternoon.
Names mentioned: Theo (Pitcairn), Mr. Buss, Mooki, Dorothy Cooper, Augusta (Pendleton), Freda (Pendleton), George Mokoena, Mr. Acton, de Geymuller, Moffat Mcanyana
