ANNUAL MEETING OF THE MOTHER CHURCH
Fully three thousand members of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Mass., were present at the annual meeting held in the church edifice on Monday afternoon, June 3. Judge Clifford P. Smith, the retiring president, presided at the opening exercises. The officers elected for the ensuing year are: President, James A. Neal, C.S.D.; treasurer, Stephen A. Chase; clerk, John V. Dittemore. Judge Smith in his introduction of the new president paid fitting tribute to Mr. Neal's service to the cause and the high esteem in which he is held by all who know him. Mr. Neal then spoke as follows:—
Friends:— The Board of Directors has elected me President of The Mother Church for the coming year. I appreciate the honor and accept the duty. Before continuing the business of the meeting, I would like to say a few words about the general prosperity of the Christian Science movement; and by prosperity I mean the growing desire on the part of men and women to become Christian Scientists. This growth is shown to some extent by the increase in the circulation of our literature: and right here let me emphasize the fact that the Christian Science Publishing Society is not a business enterprise run for commercial purposes. It was established many years ago by our beloved Leader, Mrs. Eddy, for the purpose of distributing authoritative Christian Science literature, with the hope of helping mankind to a better understanding of God. Mrs. Eddy foresaw the good that could be accomplished by launching the various publications of this society, and under her guidance they have been established on a foundation that is enduring.
By way of comparison I will speak first of the ever increasing demand for Science and Health. You will recall that during the years when Mrs. Eddy was constantly revising this book, many Christian Scientists, eager to keep up with the latest and best expression of this Science, frequently purchased new copies. During the past year and a half there has, of course, been no revision of Science and Health not even a word of its text has been or ever can be changed. Notwithstanding this fact, the sales of this book have been greater during the past twelve months than in any other consecutive twelve months since its original publication.
