Identifier: RG.004.01

Scope and Contents

Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Theodore Pitcairn in Durban, Natal, S.A. Pendleton has received Pitcairn’s letter of August 24th. Pendleton is grateful for Pitcairn’s presence in Durban as they await the arrival of the new paster, Hugo (Odhner). Mr. Brown has forwarded several Sesutu translations of Liturgy portions which Pendleton will show to Basuto theological student George Mokoena. Pendleton reflects on Brown’s general situation: He seems well suited to the work in Basutoland, and Pendleton regrets that the Academy could not further extend his leave of absence. Pendleton suggests that Brown might continue his work in Basutoland after this year, with the understanding that there will be no guarantee of an Academy teaching position upon his return home. Pendleton writes that the Academy faculty is stretched so thin this year that if any one of the teachers becomes sick, there will be no one to fill in during his or her absence. Pendleton departs tomorrow for his fall trip to Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Chicago, and Glenview; He tells Pitcairn, “I wish you were here to go too.” Names mentioned: Hugo (Odhner), Mr. (Reginald) Brown, Mr. (James Frederick) Buss, (Rev. David William) Mooki, (George) Mokoena
