Letter from N.D. Pendleton to Bishop William F. Pendleton, 1903-01-23

Identifier: RG.004.01

Scope and Contents

Handwritten letter from N.D. Pendleton to Bishop William F. Pendleton. At the top of the letter, there is a small note that reads: “What do you think of Mr. Odhner’s claims that the Writings were first written in heaven?” Pendleton has not yet received copies of the new order of service from W.F.P. He is anxious to start using them and test whether they will work. Pendleton reports that both he and his wife, Beatrice, enjoyed Venita’s visit; Pendleton comments, “I found her interest in the Church lively and refreshing, especially in the school work, which she seems to have taken up with ardor and enthusiasm.” Venita informed Pendleton about the “Pittsburgh situation.” She felt that the situation was not Rev. Reginald (Brown’s) fault, but that Pendleton should now be the one to take charge of the situation. George Heath has been writing to Pendleton with suggestions regarding the Church, and Pendleton has directed him to write to W.F.P. instead to see if any of his ideas may be put to use. Names mentioned: Mr. Odhner, Beatrice (Walton Childs Pendleton), Venita (Pendleton), Reginald (William Brown), George Heath
