3called a moral nuisance, a fungus, a microbe, a mouse gnawing at the vitals of humanity. The darkness in one's self must first be cast out, in order rightly to discern

6darkness or to reflect light.

If the man of more than average avoirdupois kneels on a stool in church, let the leaner sort console this brother's

9necessity by doing likewise. Christian Scientists preserve unity, and so shadow forth the substance of our sublime faith, and the evidence of its being built upon the rock of

12divine oneness, — one faith, one God, one baptism.

If our Board of Directors is prepared to itemize a report of the first financial year since the erection of the edifice of

15The First Church of Christ, Scientist, let it do so; other- wise, I recommend that you waive the church By-law relating to finances this year of your firstfruits. This

18Board did not act under that By-law; it was not in ex- istence all of the year. It is but just to consider the great struggles with perplexities and difficulties which the

21Directors encountered in Anno Domini 1894, and which they have overcome. May God give unto us all that lov- ing sense of gratitude which delights in the opportunity to

24cancel accounts. I, for one, would be pleased to have the Christian Science Board of Directors itemize a bill of this church's gifts to Mother; and then to have them let her

27state the value thereof, if, indeed, it could be estimated.

After this financial year, when you call on the members of the Christian Science Board of Directors to itemize or

30audit their accounts, these will be found already itemized, and last year's records immortalized, with perils past and victories won.

6even wider than before, to the light of Love — and By-laws.

Affectionately yours,

MARY BAKER EDDY

12Dear Sir: — In your communication to Zion's Herald, March 18, under the heading, "Prayer and Healing; sup- plemental," you state that you would "like to hear from
