An Appreciative Letter

The accompanying letter is sent with a few words that may explain the circumstances which called it forth.

Last fall a young man, who is the organist in one of our Christian Science Churches, told me one evening of his interest in the Olivet House, Chicago, where they do settlement work similar to that of the Hull House. This young man had become interested in the mission some months prior to this time. He ascertained from a class of seventeen young men, who were placed under his charge, and whose ages ranged from seventeen to twenty-four, that they would be very much pleased if he would organize a band. He had the material in the way of instruction all provided for, but the instruments seemed to be a stumbling-block as he did not know which way to turn to secure the money. A little good Science work was done, and within a week he was told to go ahead and purchase the instruments, as the money was in sight.
