Letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Theodore Pitcairn, 1920-06-30

Identifier: RG.004.01

Scope and Contents

Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Theodore Pitcairn in Maseru, Basutoland. Pendleton acknowledges Pitcairn’s letter of May 23rd. Pitcairn has proposed sending a “Fingo” man from Cape Colony to attend theological school in Bryn Athyn. Pendleton advises Pitcairn to spend more time getting to know this man before paying to send him to Bryn Athyn. The Council meetings in Bryn Athyn have come to an end. They were quite successful overall, and it is now being suggested that the Church hold international meetings in this manor every 3 to 5 years. Pendleton will not travel to Europe this summer; Instead, Mr. Acton will preside over the district Assembly in London as the Bishop’s representative. Pitcairn had previously offered to finance one of Regamey’s sons coming to study in Bryn Athyn, but Pendleton is now doubtful that Regamey will accept this offer as his attitude towards the General Church has soured. In one of Regamey’s recent letters, he demanded that the Revs. Deltenre and Hussenet be allowed to join the French New Church societies, thus separating themselves from the General Church. Names mentioned: (David Rakobolo) Khaile, Raymond (Pitcairn), (George) Mokoena, Mr. (Alfred) Acton, Mr. (Gustave E.) Regamey, (Ernst) Deltenre, (Ferdinand) Hussenet
