Unique Gift from Germany

Concord has recently had two visitors who came here upon an unusual and unique errand. These visitors were Frau Bertha Gunther-Peterson and Fraulein Ida Schoen of Hannover, Germany, who crossed the water to pay their respects to an eminent citizen of Concord, Mary Baker Eddy, and to present her with a beautiful and valuable copy of the German Bible, the gift of the Christian Scientists of Germany.

Frau Peterson, who is the leader of Christian Science work in Hannover, Germany, is the daughter of a celebrated physician, and is a woman of great intellectuality and marked ability. Through the healing of a friend who had come to America, she was led to send for a copy of the Christian Science text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," of which Mrs. Eddy is the author. From her study of this treatise on the Science of Life, she was herself healed of severe maladies and restored to perfect health. She then visited America and took a thorough course of study in one of the leading Christian Science institutes. On her return to Germany, she at once entered actively upon the work of applied Christianity with great success.
