THE MARY BAKER EDDY SOUVENIR SPOON

It is our privilege to publish the following letter written to the Rev. Mary Baker Eddy, by the Christian Science Souvenir Co., of Concord, N. H., together with a description of the beautiful souvenir spoon therein referred to. This souvenir will be valued by Christian Scientists, not so much because of its artistic appearance or intrinsic material value, but because of that for which it stands in the spiritual sense. Silver is one of the Biblical symbols for Purity. Purity and Truth are synonymous; therefore this symbol of Purity is also a symbol of Truth. To Christian Scientists it means that Truth which is revealed to the world through "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," of which the Rev. Mary Baker Eddy is the author. Christian Scientists know that back of each souvenir is the thought of love; love for Christian Scientists, love for all mankind, regardless of person or condition. In this spirit are the souvenirs sent forth, and in this spirit will they be received. It is truly a beautiful Christmas token. May it keep us in renewed remembrance of the true Christ-mass. May we celebrate it on an ascending scale. May we take on higher and deeper appreciation, in our lives, of the teaching and example of Christ Jesus, whose coming into the world was heralded by that wondrous conjunction of earth and heaven, so graphically portrayed in Luke 2. May all who bear the name of Christ in this age re-echo the glad refrain of the angelic host:—

"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."
