A Letter from our Leader
This article was later republished in The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany: My. 351:1-21
With our Leader's kind permission, the Sentinel is privileged to publish her letter of recent date, addressed to Mr. John C. Higdon of St. Louis, Mo. This letter is especially interesting on account of its beautiful tribute to Free Masonry.
Pleasant View, Concord, N. H., Feb. 9, 1906.
John C. Higdon, Counselor at Law,
Beloved Student: — Your interesting letter was handed to me duly. This is my earliest moment in which to answer it.
"Know Thyself," the title of your gem quoted, is indeed a divine command, for the morale of Free Masonry is above ethics — it touches the hem of his garment who spake divinely.
It was truly Masonic, tender, grand in you to remember me as the widow of Mason.
May you and I and all mankind meet in that hour of Soul, where are no partings, no pain.
Lovingly yours in Christ,
Mary Baker Eddy.
