Letters to our Leader

Boston, Mass., July 11, 1906.

Dearest Leader:—Before leaving these stories I feel compelled to tell you with what sacred resolve I am returning to the work in London. This thought suggested itself to me so clearly on June 10, that our only duty lies in alert obedience to God, and that, if we perform this faithfully, in just the way you have pointed out, we cannot then "be false to any man." From the services in The Mother Church, and from interviews with faithful workers, I have caught a glimpse of a faith deeper and stronger than I yet possess. This has stimulated me to strive after such watchfulness and self-immolation as will surely lead to a deeper understanding of divine Love. Your students, Mr. and Mrs. Miller, longed to be present at the dedication, but could not be spared at this season. The spiritual growth of our little branch of the Vine is striking; numbers are being healed and are devoting themselves to the joyous work of liberating others. My gratitude towards you deepens as I realize the immensity of this revelation that has unmasked evil, the imposter of the ages, and is enthroning infinite good in the hearts of men, through your purity and faithfulness.

I am humbly your follower,
Violet Ker Seymer.
Delegate Third Church of Christ, Scientist, London, England.
