Scope and Contents

Handwritten letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. George Goddard Starkey in Chicago, IL, USA. Text: “Your note in regard to matter for the “Life” came to hand today. We are just about to begin our work here, and when that is done I can better decide what I will be able to do; but whatever it may be it shall be gladly done. Yours truly N. D. Pendleton (over). I am glad you have seen something of Paul and like him, I was quite impressed with him while here, especially by a certain humility which he seemed to have. I feel confident that he will make a useful and devoted servant of the Church, and add strength to its priesthood. I long to see more heroic work done in the field, which requires a mind and character, under the providence of the Lord, rare at this day. I may be mistaken, but I have sometimes thought that P. was built in this mould, that is has the natural disposition which if inspired with a spiritual motive, would be willing and glad to go out and do hard service. “The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church”” Names mentioned: Paul (Carpenter?)
