Letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. John Headsten, 1918-03-14

Identifier: RG.004.01

Scope and Contents

Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. John Headsten in Chicago, IL, USA. Pendleton encloses several letters which he thinks will explain themselves. Concerning evangelization, Pendleton writes, “I, of course, believe that all of our ministers employ only open and honorable means in their missionary endeavors. I take this so much for granted that I refuse to testify to it.” Pendleton suggests that Headsten may wish to submit a formal denial of the charges made by Convention Rev. Axel Lundeberg to the Board of Home and Foreign Missions. Pendleton would like Headsten to emphasize that the General Church “never engage[s] in a propaganda simply for the purpose of gaining members” and that it “welcome[s] all who apply for membership wherever they may be.” Names mentioned: Mr. (E.H.) Alden, Rev. Alex Lundeberg
