oncord (N.H.) Daily Patriot]

   Dear Editor: - In the issue of your good paper, the
Patriot, May 21, when referring to the Memorial service
of the E. E. Sturtevant Post held in my church building,
it read, "It is said to be the first time in the history of
the church in this country that such an event has
occurred."  In your next issue please correct this mistake.
Since my residence in Concord, 1889, the aforesaid
Memorial service has been held annually in some church
in Concord, N. H.
   When the Veterans indicated their desire to assemble
in my church building, I consented thereto only as other
churches had done.  But here let me say that I am
absolutely and religiously opposed to war, whereas I do
believe implicitly in the full efficacy of divine Love to
conciliate by arbitration all quarrels between nations
and peoples.
