True Appreciation

[The following letter so ably supplements Mr. Strang's article, "Lest we forget," which appeared in the Sentinel of April 28, that it is worthy of careful attention on the part of Christian Scientists, and we are glad to accord it a prominent place in our columns.—EDITOR.]

New York, N. Y., May 5, 1906.

Beloved Teacher and Leader:—I read Mr. Strang's splendid tribute to you, published in the last Sentinel, with great interest and appreciation. The warning is timely, and such danger signals as this, placed at perilous points in our heavenward journey, I am sure will save us many mistakes and much unnecessary suffering. I am at times overwhelmingly impressed by the thought of the true relationship which exists between Christian Scientists and you, and how imperative it is to maintain these sacred ties pure, clear, and inviolate. I am impressed with the great need of understanding this relationship and forever demonstrating this understanding in humility and obedience to Principle, to insure the perpetuity of this great Cause. I am convinced that the future integrity and effectiveness of this powerful movement must be, as it has been, dependent upon the loyalty, love, and distinguished meekness of its individual members, and this can only come as the result of a right apprehension and recognition of you, and a constant recollection of the everlasting indebtedness and gratitude which are your due.
