Hull, England. Sept. 10, 1908.

Dear Mrs. Eddy:—We have so much to be grateful for that we feel impelled to send you an expression of our love and gratitude. Through the teachings of that wonderful book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," the truth about God and ourselves is being revealed to us as the Comforter. You will like to know that Christian Science is making progress here, brightening and uplifting the lives of those who are learning to love it, and attracting more and more attention by its healing and saving power. A new Reading Room and library have just been acquired in the center of the city; an increasing appreciation of Christian Science is continually manifesting itself in the greater numbers present at all our meetings. The Sunday School is so full that we are compelled to ask for more commodious quarters. Several cases of healing by the children bring home forcibly the glorious privilege of being either a teacher or a scholar in the Sunday School. The vessels in our docks are now visited, and our literature, which thus finds its way to ports all over the world, is welcomed. The public libraries now receive five copies of the Journal and Sentinel regularly, thanks to the generosity of our Publishing Society in Boston, and Science and Health is in constant demand both in our own library and in those of the city.

These, dear Leader, are some of the visible signs of an increasing sense of the attractiveness and practicability of the Christ-healing to this age, and behind all these is a growing sense of unity and love among our members which makes life in Christian Science such a joy. A few days ago it was said to a practitioner, by a venerable man living in the same house as a patient (in alluding to Christian Scientists), "I never thought there were such people in the world." I only quote this to assure your loving heart of the earnest and sincere desire of the members of this church to follow in the footsteps of our Master by obediently proving their faith in God by their works, and by their love one to another.
