TO A STUDENT



   Dear Student: - Please accept my thanks for your
kind invitation, on behalf of the Civic League of San
Francisco, to attend the Industrial Peace Conference,
and accept my hearty congratulations.
   I cannot spare the time requisite to meet with you;
but I rejoice with you in all your wise endeavors for
industrial, civic, and national peace.  Whatever adorns
Christianity crowns the great purposes of life and demonstrates
the Science of being.  Bloodshed, war, and oppression
belong to the darker ages, and shall be relegated
to oblivion.
   It is a matter for rejoicing that the best, bravest, most
cultured men and women of this period unite with us in
the grand object embodied in the Association for International
Conciliation.
   In Revelation 2 : 26, St. John says: "And he that
overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to
him will I give power over the nations."  In the words
of St. Paul, I repeat: -
   "And they neither found me in the temple disputing
with any man, neither raising up the people, neither
in the synagogues, nor in the city:  neither can they
prove the things whereof they now accuse me.  But
this I confess unto thee, that after the way which
they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers,
believing all things which are written in the law and in
the prophets."
                                        Most sincerely yours,
                                        Mary Baker Eddy
                                        Pleasant View, Concord, N. H.
