Letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Eldred Edward Iungerich, 1930-06-26

Identifier: RG.004.01

Scope and Contents

Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Eldred Edward Iungerich in Pittsburgh, PA, USA. Pendleton finds Iungerich’s comment about the length of the papers read aloud at the Assembly pertinent. Pendleton suggests they might try instituting a strict time limit, but he is doubtful about how well that will work. Pendleton hopes Iungerich’s letter to Mr. Pfeiffer will “call for a modest admission.” He states that the main issue the Church has with Pfeiffer is the tone of authenticity with which he presents his ideas. Pendleton writes about a recent meeting he had with Theodore Pitcairn: “I had a talk of some length and not a little frankness with Theo before he sailed. I was not reassured. He admitted that the Hague movement ‘broke with one of the traditions of the Academy.’ The subject of our discussion was the status of the future prophets of the New Church. He seemed to hold that Swedenborg was the first of the Second Advent series.” Names mentioned: Mr. (Ernst) Pfeiffer, Theodore (Pitcairn)
