The Laying of the Corner-Stone in Concord

Concord (N. H.) Patriot

A letter in this article was later republished in The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany: My. 158:6-30

The ceremony of laying the corner-stone of the new church, the gift of the Rev. Mary Baker Eddy to the Christian Scientists of Concord, took place at half past twelve o'clock, to-day. In accordance with the wish of Mrs. Eddy the services were of a simple nature.

But few members of the church from abroad were present, and less than one hundred people resident in the city witnessed the ceremony from places of vantage in the square on which the church is being constructed. But for the expressed desire of Mrs. Eddy the attendance would have been very large, as people from various parts of the country, to the number of two or three thousand, had arranged to be present.
