Letter from N.D. Pendleton's wife to Rev. Carl Theophilus Odhner

Identifier: RG.004.01

Scope and Contents

Handwritten letter from N.D. Pendleton's wife, Beatrice Walton Childs Pendleton, to Rev. Carl Theophilus Odhner. No Date. “I have been burning the midnight oil in my effort to get off this communication in time. It has been written under difficulty, and may not meet with your approval. In which case, change it, or don’t publish it- I wont be one bit hurt. I have put question marks where I have been uncertain of words- like your Swedish smorgasbord. In reading it, I should advise you to take a deep breath and plunge in. It is impossible(?) to cover(?) so many events(?) without an atmosphere(?) of the cinematograph. I always feel out of breath and I read it several times. Notes. On page 7- Is it Mrs. James Hyde? Page 16. How do you spell Tidskrift? Page 26. And smorgasbord? And if by any chance my communication pleases you, I’ll write up quite willingly any number of European “impressions” in the future! Cordially yours, Beatrice Childs Pendleton.” Names mentioned: Mrs. James Hyde
