Identifier: RG.004.01

Scope and Contents

Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Ernst Pfeiffer in The Hague, Holland. Pendleton has received Pfeiffer’s report of Nov. 9th and notes of Nov. 10th and 12th. The Executive Committee has approved the customary allocation of $75 to fund Pfeiffer’s proposed public lecture series. Pendleton has received Pfeiffer’s translation of excerpts from the “De Hemelshe Leer” magazine. He writes, “. . . [I] noted with much interest the points of apparent difference between your view and that which has prevailed in the General Church. Time, as the hand of Providence, may work out a conclusion which is at present beyond our ken. Disputes as to doctrine usually run their course and become quiescent before a solution emerges.” Pendleton hopes both Theo (Pitcairn) and Pfeiffer will be able to attend the February meetings in Bryn Athyn. Pendleton commends Pfeiffer on the “remarkable” progress made over the last year on the Dutch translations of the Writings. Names mentioned: Mr. (Hubert) Hyatt, Theodore (Pitcairn), Marijke (Maryke Urban Pitcairn)
