Letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Eldred Edward Iungerich, 1930-07-19

Identifier: RG.004.01

Scope and Contents

Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Eldred Edward Iungerich in Pittsburgh, PA, USA. Pendleton thanks Iungerich for showing him the correspondence between Iungerich and Mr. Pfeiffer. Pendleton remarks that Pfeiffer did not give Iungerich much of a reply and that “one cannot but admire the grandeur of his reserve.” Pendleton has enclosed with this letter a copy of Theodore Pitcairn’s letter to him (Pendleton) and his reply. Pendleton feels Pitcairn has put him in a difficult position by asking him to decide if he should return to Bryn Athyn from South Africa. Pendleton writes, “If I tell him to come, it will be a definite endorsement of his stipulated right to propagandize (both form the pulpit and in classes) Mr. Pfeiffer’s ideas . . . if I tell him to not to come, I will lay myself open to the charge of having removed a pastor because of a difference of doctrinal opinion.” Pendleton feels his only recourse is to insist that Pitcairn decide for himself. Names mentioned: Mr. (Ernst) Pfeiffer, Theodore (Pitcairn)
