Mary Baker Eddy writes in a letter in "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" (p. 133): "My Beloved Brethren: —I have a secret to tell you and a question to ask. Do you know how much I love you and the nature of this love? No: then my sacred secret is incommunicable, and we live apart. But, yes: and this inmost something becomes articulate, and my book is not all you know of me."

At a church service in The Mother Church one day in the year 1903 an invitation was read from our Leader, Mrs. Eddy, inviting all members of The Mother Church to call on her at Concord, New Hampshire. Those of us who responded to this invitation gathered on the lawn of Pleasant View at the hour designated and sang Mrs. Eddy's hymn "Feed My Sheep" (Poems, p. 14). Mrs. Eddy then welcomed us from the upper porch. The whole experience—preparation and fulfillment—was to me both joyous and reverent.
