Will all the dear Christian Scientists accept my tender
greetings for the forthcoming holidays, and grant me
20 this request,—let the present season pass without one
gift to me.
Our church edifice must be built in 1894. Take thither
thy saintly offerings, and lay them in the outstretched
hand of God. The object to be won affords ample oppor-
25 tunity for the grandest achievement to which Christian
Scientists can direct attention, and feel themselves alone
among the stars.
No doubt must intervene between the promise and
event; faith and resolve are friends to Truth; seize them,
1 trust the divine Providence, push upward our prayer in
stone,—and God will give the benediction.
