Letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Homer Synnestvedt, 1920-01-19

Identifier: RG.004.01

Scope and Contents

Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Homer Synnestvedt in Pittsburgh, PA, USA. Pendleton responds to Synnestvedt’s letter of January 19th. He would prefer not to visit Pittsburgh this spring as he has already committed to visiting Philadelphia, Toronto, Kitchener, and possibly New York. He will stop in at Pittsburgh in the fall as part of his Chicago-Glenview-Denver circuit. Pendleton was glad to hear Synnestvedt spent his New Year’s vacation in Toronto. Regarding the state of the Toronto society and its attitude towards its pastor, Emil Cronlund, Pendleton states that he visited the society last year and found most of the older men to be in favor of Cronlund and against his critic. Pendleton continues, “However, I warned Emil that unless he met the state frankly, and earnestly labored to remove the difficulty, he would find himself in hotter water next time. My heart is touched by pity for him, for I fear he cannot remove the real difficulty.” Names mentioned: Emil (Cronlund)
