About this Item

This English educator and author served as principal of University College in Liverpool (1899-1903) and long-time vice-chancellor at the University of Liverpool (1903-19); in 1903 he revised and edited a history of English Congregationalism written by his father, the noted Congregationalist church leader Robert William Dale. TLS, 1p, 7" X 9", Liverpool, England, 7 November 1908. Addressed to Reverend Oliver Huckel (1864-1940, American Congregationalist clergyman and author). Very good. Faint original folds; mounting traces on verso. On University of Liverpool letterhead, Dale discusses some cryptic but clearly delicate issue regarding his and Huckel's mutual friend, the noted Scottish theologian P.T. Forsyth (1848-1921). In part, ".the Council and Educational Board of Mansfield College. came to no final decision, so your judgment will still be in time to help us. I fully appreciate all that you say of Forsyth, who is a close friend of mine and was a neighbour for many years; but we cannot run the risk of moving a man of his age to Oxford to begin new work under totally new conditions. He has never been a strong man physically." Boldly signed. Most interesting -- Forsyth had preached at Mansfield College in January 1908, but what the sensitive issue under discussion here is unclear. Bookseller Inventory # 41570
