Boston, Mass., July 30, 1909. Mrs. Mary Baker Eddy, Brookline, Mass.

Beloved Leader:—We, the committees on publication for the United States and Canada, assembled in Boston, wish to express to you our earnest appreciation of your great kindness in making it possible for us to be received and entertained in your home today. We are profoundly grateful for the opportunity thus afforded to see you in your home, and we are especially gratified to observe our Father's loving care of you manifested in such evident good health, and to know that you are daily about His business. The pleasure of visiting your home was the more appreciated because it was unexpected, and was agreeably supplemented by the courtesy of the members of your household.

We thank you for your greeting and message. In response to your loving admonition to know you not through your personality but through your book, your writings, and your great love for us and for all mankind, as well as your constant admonition to follow you only as you follow Christ, we answer that the test of our fidelity shall be the fruits of our labors in obedience to your precepts and example.
