Annual Meeting of The Mother Church

The annual meeting of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Mass., was held in the church edifice, Monday afternoon, June 7. Promptly at two o'clock the meeting was opened by the retiring president, John C. Lathrop, who announced and read Mrs. Eddy's best known and loved hymn, No. 195, "Shepherd, show me how to go." After the singing of this hymn, Mr. Lathrop read selections from the Bible and correlative passages from Science and Health, and silent prayer was followed by the audible repetition of the Lord's Prayer. Another of Mrs. Eddy's hymns, No. 198, "O'er waiting harpstrings of the mind," was sung, and as the first item of business the names of the officers of The Mother Church for the ensuing year were read by Mr. Lathrop as follows:—

President, Edward A. Merritt; treasurer, Adam H. Dickey; clerk, John V. Dittemore.
