Letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Fred E. Gyllenhaal, 1924-04-09
Scope and Contents
Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Fred E. Gyllenhaal. Upon returning from vacation in Boston, Pendleton received Gyllenhaal’s letter of March 14th. Mr. Worchester of the Convention Church will be visiting Bryn Athyn shortly, Pendleton suspects for the purpose of discussing the General Church’s “supposed trenching on their field.” In response to Gyllenhaal’s request that Pendleton approve of Assembly invitations for the Conference Church’s London ministers, Pendleton writes that General Church Assemblies are public and open to anyone who would like to attend. However, he warns that others in the past have made unsuccessful attempts to bring the different bodies of the Church closer together. Pendleton approves of the Assembly program and informs Gyllenhaal that the title of his address will be “Christian Rites and Ceremonials in the New Church.” Pendleton requests that Gyllenhaal book rooms in the Metropole hotel for himself, his wife (Mrs. Beatrice Pendleton), and Theodore Pitcairn. After the Assembly, they will visit Colchester, Sweden, Germany, and Denmark.
