Los Angeles, Cal., Nov. 16, 1906.

Beloved Leader:—This is a time when your students, and the thousands who have received the blessings of health, the joy and peace of spiritual understanding, and a truer and more helpful and elevating knowledge of God and His relation to man, from your teachings and example, feel drawn to you, more than ever before, by the ties of love and gratitude. Your life has been so consecrated to works of beneficence, so free from any symptom of animosity towards any other church, or creed, or any of your fellowmen, that any attack upon your mode of living, or your motives or acts, seems so cruel, so unjust, that it is hard to look upon it as impersonal and to wholly suppress or overcome a sense of indignation. Your home, from which has come to us such words of admonition, counsel, hope, and wisdom, has seemed to us all as a sanctuary that should be kept inviolate from any worldly intrusion. I have heretofore refrained from adding to your manifold labors by any communication from me, but I feel impelled, at this time when you are being so unjustly assailed, to give expression to my deep gratitude for the inestimable blessings that have come to myself and my family through your teachings, and to say to you how sincerely we sympathize with you in this time of unwarranted and unjustifiable persecution.

Mrs. Works, who, like myself, was healed in Christian Science, joins me in expressing our love and gratitude. We are striving to show our appreciation of the great blessings we have received in Christian Scrence, by devoting ourselves to its study and beneficent work.
