Letters to our Leader

Lynn, Mass., Dec. 15, 1905.
Mrs. Mary Baker G. Eddy, Concord, N. H.

Beloved Leader :— First Church of Christ, Scientist, of Lynn, in annual meeting assembled, sends you loving greetings. We feel that you would be pleased to know what the church is doing in the city that was the scene of your earlier labors, and in a spirit of loyal gratitude to you, God's messenger to this age, the following is submitted.

The church membership is sixty-five, sixteen of whom were admitted the past year. Somewhat over a year ago a beautiful building was erected in the business portion of the city, in which is a hall with a seating capacity of four hundred and seventy, in every way most admirably designed and artistically finished. The proprietors were desirous of renting it to us, and the church voted to secure it. The treasurer states that while the expenses were doubled by taking this step, it has been easier to meet them since than it was before. Our Sunday congregations are in the neighborhood of one hundred and twenty-five.
