The  following article on Christmas by the Rev. Mary Baker Eddy is republished from the Concord (N. H.) Evening Monitor, it having originally appeared in the New York Journal of Sunday, December 23, 1900. As published in said Journal, however, this article on Christmas was coupled with another article by Mrs. Eddy which appeared, a few days since, in the Providence (R. I.) Telegram and also the Boston Herald, and was called by the New York Journal a sermon. They were entirely separate articles and were not intended to be joined together; nor has Mrs. Eddy written or delivered a sermon for several years.

This arrangement of the article by the editor of the New York Journal was the result of a mistake between himself and Mrs. Eddy, as she informs us, and therefore she attaches no blame to the editor of that valuable newspaper, nor need that have any effect upon Christian Scientists so far as perusing this splendid Christmas issue of the New York Journal is concerned.

Mrs. Eddy's article on Christmas is as follows:—
