Identifier: RG.004.01

Scope and Contents

Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Fred E. Gyllenhaal in Durban, Natal, South Africa. Pendleton has received Gyllenhaal’s letter of April 18th with enclosed membership applications for Mr. and Mrs. J. D’Arcy Cockerell and Mr. and Mrs. S. D. Cockerell, as well as a copy of Mr. Price’s letter to Gyllenhaal with Gyllenhaal’s reply. Pendleton suggests that Price’s letter be interpreted in charity with the assumption that he did not realize what he was doing. Pendleton reports that Bryn Athyn has been very busy over the last few weeks with school closing and annual meetings. Several families from out of town have come to spend the summer in Bryn Athyn, as well as many of the wives of men who have enlisted in the Army. Theodore Pitcairn departed for South Africa but was turned back because he has not obtained permission from the British government; He has now applied for permission and hopes to leave soon. Pendleton discusses the War. The USA has sent more than one million soldiers to France, and Pendleton believes Germany will make one final, futile effort to break the Western Front. Names mentioned: Mr. and Mrs. J. D’Arcy Cockerell, Mr. and Mrs. S. D. Cockerell, Mr. Prince, Arthur Lechner, Charles Ebert, Paul Carpenter, Theodore Pitcairn
