Z.E. Lewis letter
Scope and Contents
The collection consists of a letter thanking Fuller for hosting Lewis for an October 3, 1920 visit to Durham where he was introduced to Edgemont residents in hopes of him later establishing a church with them, and requesting Fuller issue a formal call for Lewis if so desired, so he could consider coming to Durham instead of Presbyterian mission work.
