MRS. EDDY'S GIFT TO THE CONCORD CHURCH



oncord (N. H.) Monitor]

   "Beloved Teacher and Leader: - The members
of the Concord church are filled with profound joy
and deep gratitude that your generous gift of one hundred
thousand dollars is to be used at once to build a
beautiful church edifice for your followers in the capital
city of your native State.  We rejoice that the prosperity
of the Cause in your home city, where, without regard
to class or creed, you are so highly esteemed, makes
necessary the commodious and beautiful church home
you have so freely bestowed.  We thank you for this
renewed evidence of your unselfish love."

   The church will be built of the same beautiful Concord
granite of which the National Library Building in Washington
is constructed.  This is in accord with the expressed
wish of Mrs. Eddy, made known in her original
deed of trust, first announced in the Concord Monitor
of March 19, 1898.  In response to an inquiry from the
editor of that paper, Mrs. Eddy made the following
statement: -

   On January 31, 1898, I gave a deed of trust to three
individuals which conveyed to them the sum of one

MY 158


hundred thousand dollars to be appropriated in building
a granite church edifice for First Church of Christ,
Scientist, in this city.
                                        Very truly,
                                        Mary Baker Eddy
