Identifier: RG.004.01
Scope and Contents Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Albert Bjorck in Woodgreen, Salisbury, England. Pendleton was pleased with Bjorck’s letter of July 3rd.

Identifier: RG.004.01
Scope and Contents Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Albert Bjorck in Woodgreen, Salisbury, England. Pendleton acknowledges Bjorck’s letter of June 6th.
