Pastor Hugo Kelletat is mentioned briefly in Robert Kluttig's Geschichte der 
deutschen Baptisten in Polen (Winnipeg, 1973) on p. 156.  It says he served 
the Graudenz (Grudziaz) church (no name of the church is given) from April 
1, 1908 until Dec. 31, 1912.  During this time he baptized 190 persons. 
Nothing is said about his speaking ability.  A table at the end of the book 
indicates that this church had 51 members in 1937, making it the 2nd 
smallest in the Posen/Pommern Union at that time.

Sorry, but that's all.  I don't have Eduard Kupsch's history of Baptists in 
Poland (pub. in 1932 or so).  You might look there.
