Many visitors who come to Boston during the summer season will desire to see the house at 12 Broad Street, Lynn, Massachusetts, where Mrs. Eddy lived, and particularly the attic room in which she finished the first edition of Science and Health. As has been stated in these columns, the house is now used by First Church of Christ, Scientist, Lynn, for its Reading Room, which is located on the first floor, and for a Directors' Room, literature distribution rooms, et cetera, which are located on the second floor. The third-floor room, which was used by Mrs. Eddy, is open daily from 10.00 a.m. to 5.30 p.m., excepting holidays and Sundays. It is desired that everyone who wishes to visit this room shall know when it may be seen. First Church of Christ, Scientist, Lynn, Massachusetts, which acts as a caretaker for the house as well as a tenant, is not prepared to open the room on Sundays and holidays.

From a small group of Christian Scientists in Sweden comes a check for the Publishing House Building Fund and a letter expressing their happiness in being able to send the collections taken on the first Sunday of each month at their services since their last contribution in July, 1932. They write: "We feel that by partaking in the expenses for the building, even if the contribution is small, we are doing our part in helping to fulfill Jesus' commandment to go 'into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature,' because this duty will be so much easier for The Christian Science Publishing Society to perform when the technical qualifications are at hand."
