Scope and Contents

Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Fred E. Gyllenhaal in Durban, Natal, South Africa. Pendleton has received Gyllenhaal’s letters of May 8th and 29th. Pendleton discusses Gyllenhaal’s report of his missionary trip to Basutoland; Pendleton is interested in Gyllenhaal’s assessment of the spiritual state and development of the Basuto people. In Bryn Athyn, thirty half-working scholarship students have arrived on campus to get the college buildings ready for the school year. This year they will have more girls than ever in Glenn Hall, but fewer boys in Stuart Hall owing to the War. Most of the enlisted boys are part of what used to be the Pennsylvania National Guard and are camped in Augusta, GA., waiting to be deployed to France. Pendleton hopes Miss Enid Cockerell will decide to come study in Bryn Athyn; If she can pay for her passage from South Africa, the Academy will give her a full scholarship. Pendleton congratulates Gyllenhaal on his recent marriage to Miss Pemberton. Names mentioned: (Twentymen) Mofokeng, Miss Enid Cockerell
