German Lutheran Church; Patriotism; German Language; American Church; State Center, Iowa; Des Moines, Iowa
This is a letter from H. E. Morrow a pastor from a Methodist Church of State Center, Iowa. He is informing Metcalf of a German Lutheran Church that is said to come to town every Sunday and hold a service in the German language in his church building. He wondered if it is his right and patriotic duty for a good American church to allow his building to be used by people who hold service in the German language. He wants to know what action should be taken for this circumstance.
