Identifier: RG.004.01

Scope and Contents

Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Eldred Edward Iungerich in Pittsburgh, PA, USA. Pendleton reports that George (DeCharms) has read Iungerich’s letter about the situation in Paris; DeCharms will travel to Paris over the summer to gather information on the state of affairs. Pendleton recounts the situation with Miss Kintner in an attempt to correct recent rumors; Miss (Dorothy) Burnham approached Pendleton about Miss Kintner failing to complete her scholarship work. When Pendleton sent a letter to Kintner about this, she replied “in a wild letter, saying that she could not do the work because she had a ‘covenant with the Lord’ to do something else.” Pendleton writes, “The letter convinced me that she was practically out of her head, and that the dormitory could not properly handle her case; so she was sent home, not on account of defiance of our requirements, but owing to her mental irresponsibility.” Kintner was then readmitted following a letter from her mother accompanied by a doctor’s statement that she was “normal” again. Pendleton advises Iungerich on the controversy over receiving non-local members at local churches; He is in favor of receiving non-local members, though he suggests that Iungerich might make non-local members ineligible to vote on society property matters. Names mentioned: George (DeCharms), Miss Kintner, Miss (Dorothy) Burnham
