AN ELEGANT SOUVENIR



vening Monitor, Concord, N. H., February 27, 1895]

   Rev. Mary Baker Eddy Memorialized by a Christian
   Science Church

   Rev. Mary Baker Eddy, Discoverer of Christian Science,
has received from the members of The First Church of
Christ, Scientist, Boston, an invitation formally to accept

PUL 77


the magnificent new edifice of worship which the church
has just erected.
   The invitation itself is one of the most chastely elegant
memorials ever prepared, and is a scroll of solid gold,
suitably engraved, and encased in a handsome plush
casket with white silk linings.  Attached to the scroll is a
golden key of the church structure.
   The inscription reads thus: -

   "Dear Mother: - During the year eighteen hundred and
ninety-four a church edifice was erected at the intersection
of Falmouth and Norway Streets, in the city of Boston,
by the loving hands of four thousand members.  This
edifice is built as a testimonial to Truth, as revealed by
divine Love through you to this age.  You are hereby
most lovingly invited to visit and formally accept this
testimonial on the twentieth day of February, eighteen
hundred and ninety-five, at high noon.
   "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, at Boston, Mass.
                                        "By Edward P. Bates,
                                        "Caroline S. Bates


   "To the Reverend Mary Baker Eddy,
   "Boston, January 6th, 1895"
