I Desire to express my gratitude for the new order recently issued through the Sentinel and Journal relative to the requirements for public practitioners of Christian Science. Instead of finding it restrictive, it has brought to me a greater sense of freedom by compelling me to systematize the work in thought. By mentally obeying the requirements involved by this order, and taking such steps as are demanded to fall into line, I have not only been able to do better work, but more people have come to me than ever before, seeking help from this wonderful truth which has been again revealed to the world through the inspired thought of our Leader, Mrs. Eddy, and known to the world as Christian Science. I see more clearly than ever before how necessary it is that we who are in the ranks stand ready to respond with prompt obedience to the bugle call of those at headquarters, that we may not in any way impede or retard the carrying out of Truth's command.

The lesson which came to me as I listened to the reading of our Leader's message of 1902, to The Mother Church, was that of intelligent and loving obedience, and experience has proved its value.
