LETTERS TO OUR LEADER

A reply in this article was later republished in The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany: My. 208:10-22

Edinburgh, Scotland, Oct. 22, 1909.

Dear Leader:—The board of directors of First Church of Christ, Scientist, Edinburgh, are desirous that you should know of the progress we are making here, so I have been be asked to write and tell you about it. We feel sure you will be glad to hear that we are going to build a church. Eight years ago you started our building fund by a very generous gift which came as a great encouragement to us in our work. The gracious words which you wrote to us at the time seemed to bring you very near to us, and gave us wonderful sense of your loving care for even such a little band as we were, so far across the sea. You have shown us that "space is no separator of hearts" (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 150), and we love to remember that Edinburgh is dear to you as your great-grandfather's home, and that tales of Scotland told you in childhood's days are still fresh in your memory.
