hristian Science Sentinel, February 15, 1908]

   Whereas, her residence here has been the source of so
much good to the city, and
   Whereas, the most kindly and helpful relations have
ever existed between Mrs. Eddy and Concord and Concord
people,
   Be It Resolved, That the City of Concord, through its
Board of Aldermen and Common Council, in joint
convention, convey to Mrs. Eddy,

Mrs. Eddy's Reply

  To the Honorable Mayor and City Council,
  Concord, N. H.

   Gentlemen: - I have not only the pleasure, but the
honor of replying to the City Council of Concord, in
joint convention assembled, and to Alderman Cressy,
for the kindly resolutions passed by your honorable
body, and for which I thank you deeply.  Lest I should
acknowledge more than I deserve of praise, I leave their
courteous opinions to their good judgment.

MY 366


   My early days hold rich recollections of associations
with your churches and institutions, and memory has a
distinct model in granite of the good folk in Concord,
which, like the granite of their State, steadfast and
enduring, has hinted this quality to other states and
nations all over the world.
   My home influence, early education, and church
experience, have unquestionably ripened into the fruits
9 of my present religious experience, and for this I prize
them.  May I honor this origin and deserve the continued
friendship and esteem of the people in my native
State.
                                        Sincerely yours,
                                        Mary Baker G. Eddy
