Scope and Contents

Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton's secretary, Freda Pendleton, to Rev. Ernst Deltenre in Brussels, Belgium. F. Pendleton acknowledges receipt of Deltenre’s letter to the Bishop of Dec. 6th; Everyone was delighted to hear from him after so many years of silence. The Bishop has been ill for the past several months and has had to get away for his health. He is sailing with Theodore Pitcairn to visit the Church circles in Australia and South Africa, and he hopes to visit Belgium, Holland, and France on his way home. F. Pendleton writes that the success of Deltenre’s Mission, in terms of attendance at services and the number of books given out, is truly remarkable under the circumstances. F. Pendleton reports that the Church in Bryn Athyn is peaceful; the controversy over the bodies of spirits and angels is hardly ever discussed anymore, and the school is larger than ever and running smoothly. F. Pendleton is looking forward to seeing Deltenre’s two daughters in Bryn Athyn again shortly. She reports that the General Assembly will be held in Bryn Athyn in October when the Church building will be ready for dedication, and she hopes Deltenre will be able to attend. With the Bishop away, the Bishop Emeritus (W.F. Pendleton) has stepped in and taken his place. Names mentioned: Theodore Pitcairn, Mr. Barger, Dorothy Cooper, Claire (Deltenre), Mrs. Deltenre
