Bundle of Letters

Scope and Content

Handwritten letters from Leonard Sheldrake to his business partner and fellow evangelist William J. Pell, mostly concerning the activities of the Gospel Folio Press. One of the letters has a typescript letter attached from J.W. Swarz to Sheldrake. Included among the letters is a typescript article by Richard Sheldrake entitled 'A word of exhortation', a detailed handwritten list (possibly a list of themes for preaching), a short note in verse form [the words of a hymn?], a handwritten draft of a 'Notice' advertising the magazineWords of Peace, and a brief typescript note citing Sheldrake's intention to obtain '10,000 French testaments for Quebec'.

Most of the letters are undated. There is an envelope with one letter dated 1923, and a letter dated 14 Dec 1922; the last letter in the bundle is dated 23 Sep 1936.
