Items of Interest

A prospective guest at The Christian Science Benevolent Association Sanatorium at Chestnut Hill sometimes asks whether there are any arrangements by which he may visit Mrs. Eddy's former home at Concord, New Hampshire, the location of The Christian Science Pleasant View Home, and other spots of interest. He is told that there is automobile service available at the Sanatorium whereby guests may make arrangements for such journeys. To visit the Pleasant View Home and other places associated with Mrs. Eddy in that vicinity takes a day. There are also shorter trips to points of interest in or near Boston, including Swampscott and Lynn, where the house on Broad Street, the first owned by Mrs. Eddy, may be seen, with its little upper room in which she finished writing Science and Health. Also, guests at the Sanatorium may make arrangements to attend the services of The Mother Church.

Another question asked on occasion is whether those staying at the Sanatorium may invite their personal guests to attend the Wednesday evening meetings or the Sunday services held in the Assembly Hall. Yes, if approved by the management, this may be done.

Asked whether friends may be invited to dinner and to stay afterwards, the answer is that, to a limited extent, when the dining-room facilities permit, they may. Applications should be made in advance for the privilege.
