Identifier: RG.004.01

Scope and Contents

Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Gilbert Haven Smith in Glenview, IL, USA. Pendleton has received Smith’s letter of April 27th. He responds, “I dislike throwing cold water but from an episcopal standpoint and with a view to the rigid prohibition which prevails over this land, I feel that a call to unanimous prayer would be more appropriate, - - certainly it would be more feasible. However, and in any case, I do not find in my mind at the present moment the ‘message.’ Such things come of the spirit and without reference to time.” Pendleton is busy writing his address for the upcoming Glenview General Assembly, a task which he refers to as a “tax on the spirit.” He would be grateful if Smith could arrange for the assembly banquet, speeches, etc. and he asks that Smith split these tasks with Alex (P. Lindsay) so that they may share both the labor and the honor. Names mentioned: Alex (P. Lindsay)
