Letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Theodore Pitcairn, 1920-07-15

Identifier: RG.004.01

Scope and Contents

Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Theodore Pitcairn in Durban, Natal, S.A. Pendleton wonders if Pitcairn might assist with the Durban Society during the interval between Fred Gyllenhaal’s departure for England and Hugo Odhner’s arrival in South Africa. Pendleton remarks that the Church’s activities in Basutoland remain uncertain. He hopes things will soon settle down, but this greatly depends on whether or not the Conference Church decides to withdraw their presence. Karl (Alden) has been called by the Toronto Society; He departs for Canada tomorrow via the “jitney route.” Llewellyn David has been called to the Kitchener Society as Hugo Odhner’s replacement. Pendleton hopes Kitchener will not be too disappointed with David; He writes, “While David is a man of intuition he is so quiet as to appear almost negative.” Pendleton hopes to hear from Pitcairn soon with news that his heart troubles have ceased. Names mentioned: Mr. (Reginald) Brown, Fred (Gyllenhaal), Hugo (Odhner), Mr. (James F.) Buss, Karl (Alden), Llewellyn David, Hugo (Odhner)
