An Appreciative Letter

Independent Statesman

Among the visiting Christian Scientists who responded to Mrs. Eddy's invitation to come to Concord on Old Home Day was Minnie E. Erwin of Boston, who has sent to Mrs. Eddy the following appreciative letter expressing her pleasure in the occasion:—

"Thank you for the kind message of invitation that came to your children in Boston, Wednesday afternoon. Yesterday morning we started on the early train, glad to do as Mother wished. It was a good day. Threatening clouds vanished and the sun shone brightly—a sweet prophecy. In the cars all faces were bright, and as we spoke together of the things of the Kingdom gladness seemed to reign. At nearly every station brothers and sisters came to join the happy throng. Inside the train was every manifestation of peace and love; outside, the beautiful scenery—winding rivers, green fields, and grand hills—turned our thought to the 'River of Life' and to 'the grand ideas of Truth' (Science and Health, p. 505), bringing to mind David's sweet psalm, 'As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about his people from henceforth even forever.'
