Concord's Semi-Centennial

Because Christian Scientists the world over are greatly interested in the growth and development of Concord, N. H., they will be much pleased with the semi-centennial edition of the New Hampshire Patriot, dated August 19, 1903, and issued in commemoration of Concord's fifty years' existence as a chartered city.

So many of our people have visited Concord from time to time and have been so hospitably received by its citizens, that they feel a personal interest in the city and all that pertains to its welfare, but the chief reason for their interest is that Concord is the home of our Leader. Mrs Eddy was born at Bow, N. H., within sight of her present home, and her earlier and later years have been spent in the immediate neighborhood.

This special edition of the Patriot contains a sketch of Mrs. Eddy's life and work written by Hon. Henry Robinson Postmaster and ex-Mayor of Concord. Mr. Robinson is not a Christian Scientist, but, like most of the prominent citizens of Concord, he is well acquainted with Mrs. Eddy, is conversant with her work, and competent from personal knowledge to write of her life and of her position as a leading citizen. Mr. Robinson's article is particularly well written and we believe clearly reflects the sound judgment of the Concord people, to whom Mrs. Eddy's life is as an open book.
