Timely Action

A letter in this article was later republished in The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany: My. 200:9-201:7

With much pleasure we publish below the resolution adopted September 20, 1899, by the Board of Management of First Church of Christ, Scientist, London, England.

It was moved by Mrs. Thomson and seconded by Major Rowley and resolved,

That this Board having had its attention drawn to the issue of the Washington News Letter of 6th instant, expresses its unqualified disapproval of the misstatements contained in it reflecting upon our beloved Leader, the Reverend Mary Baker G. Eddy, and showing hostility to the Christian Science Publishing Society of Boston; expresses its unshaken loyalty to and reverence and regard for Mrs. Eddy, and its continued confidence in the motives and acts of the members of the Christian Science Publishing Society, its editors and business manager; and directs that no copies of this newspaper be issued from the Book Room or allowed to remain in the Reading Room of this Church; and that copies of this resolution be forwarded to Mr. Calvin A. Frye, Mrs. Eddy's secretary, and the Publishing Society.
