London, England, June 5, 1908.

Beloved Leader:—I want to take a minute of your time to tell you of the happiness with which I have heard the news of my appointment, by the Directors, as District Manager of the Publication Committees in Great Britain and Ireland, under the new By-law, because the greatest happiness which can come to me is the opportunity to prove practically my gratitude for all that. Christian Science has meant to me.

I find it impossible to express in any adequate way what I think I perceive of "the vast design and purpose" of the publication work, and of the wisdom which instituted it. Eight years ago, when I was appointed Publication Committee for London, for the first time, I had no conception of what the work meant or was intended to mean. Only very gradually, as I have come to understand better the teaching of Science and Health, has your wisdom in foreseeing the necessities of the work, and providing for them, become at all clear to me; and I begin to see that to become more ready to obey, by listening more alertly to hear Truth speak, is not the least of the ways in which we can show our gratitude to you, in proving that we are at last beginning to understand something of the true meaning of Love.
