   Beloved Christian Scientists: - Your prompt presence in
Concord at my unexplained call witnesses your fidelity
to Christian Science and your spiritual unity with your

MY 244

Leader.  I have awaited your arrival before informing
you of my purpose in sending for you, in order to avoid
the stir that might be occasioned among those who wish
to share this opportunity and to whom I would gladly
give it at this time if a larger class were advantageous
to the students.
   You have been invited hither to receive from me one or
more lessons on Christian Science, prior to conferring on
any or all of you who are ready for it, the degree of C.S.D.,
of the Massachusetts Metaphysical College.  This opportunity
is designed to impart a fresh impulse to our spiritual
attainments, the great need of which I daily discern.
I have awaited the right hour, and to be called of God
to contribute my part towards this result.
   The "secret place," whereof David sang, is unquestionably
man's spiritual state in God's own image and likeness,
even the inner sanctuary of divine Science, in which
mortals do not enter without a struggle or sharp experience,
and in which they put off the human for the divine.
Knowing this, our Master said: "Many are called, but few
are chosen."  In the highest sense of a disciple, all loyal
students of my books are indeed my students, and your
wise, faithful teachers have come so to regard them.
   What I have to say may not require more than one
lesson.  This, however, must depend on results.  But
the lessons will certainly not exceed three in number.
No charge will be made for my services.
