1      the magnificent new edifice of worship which the church

         has just erected.

3      The invitation itself is one of the most chastely elegant

         memorials ever prepared, and is a scroll of solid gold,

         suitably engraved, and encased in a handsome plush

6      casket with white silk linings. Attached to the scroll is a

         golden key of the church structure.

         The inscription reads thus: —

9      “Dear Mother: — During the year eighteen hundred and

         ninety-four a church edifice was erected at the intersection

         of Falmouth and Norway Streets, in the city of Boston,

12    by the loving hands of four thousand members. This

         edifice is built as a testimonial to Truth, as revealed by

         divine Love through you to this age. You are hereby

15    most lovingly invited to visit and formally accept this

         testimonial on the twentieth day of February, eighteen

         hundred and ninety-five, at high noon.

18    “The First Church of Christ, Scientist, at Boston, Mass.

         “BY EDWARD P. BATES,

         “CAROLINE S. BATES
