An Interesting Letter

[The following letter, received by our Leader from the Earl of Dunmore, who was one of our recent visitors from England, will interest our readers who had the pleasure of meeting so many Christian Scientists from across the water.—EDITOR.]

Knutsford, England, June 24, 1906.

Dear Mrs. Eddy:—We arrived in Liverpool yesterday afternoon, having left Boston on June 13, three days after the dedication services for the Extension of The Mother Church. We were most deeply impressed with the whole ceremonial. The services were as beautiful as the edifice in which they were held, and the extraordinary patience and loving forbearance of the Christian Scientists who were welded together in one huge mass outside the church, waiting for hours under a burning summer sun for admission to the successive services, was not the least wonderful item in the history of that never-to-be-forgotten 10th day of June, 1906. It was instructive and very pathetic; I saw many who failed to get in after waiting hours, but they retired patient and joyful, knowing that nothing could ever keep them out.
