Words of Counsel

The following heretofore unpublished letter from our revered Leader to the Christian Science Board of Directors, is herewith shared with the whole field because of its wise counsel to all Christian Scientists.

Pleasant View, Concord, N. H., Feb. 27, 1903.
Christian Science Board of Directors.

Beloved Students:—I am not a lawyer, and do not sufficiently comprehend the legal trend of the copy you enclosed to me to suggest any changes therein. Upon one point, however, I feel competent to advise, namely: Never abandon the by-laws nor the denominational government of The Mother Church. If I am not personally with you, the Word of God and my instructions in the by-laws have led you hitherto and will remain to guide you safely on, and the teachings of St. Paul are as useful today as when they were first written.
