I was pleased to get your letterEditorial Note: This is probably a reference to Clara E. Choate's letter to Mary Baker Eddy, dated August 16, 1879 (025A.10.006)., you will excuse me I have so much on hand. All the CEditorial Note: Church business to be done over because the Clerk was not sworn; the lawyers say one way and then another

They said before this, it could be done after the meeting just as well, they now say it must be at the time they are chosen.

I hope dear one, you will in the far future reach the place of teacher and lecturer It is a humble solemn, earnest, unselfish, perfectly sincere place that we must arrive at before we can be fit to impart God's direct commands. Now as before they must come from Horeb, the Mount of holinessEditorial Note: According to some Bible texts, Horeb is the mountain where Moses received the Ten Commandments. Other texts say he received the Commandments on Mount Sinai. Some scholars believe that Mount Horeb and Mount Sinai are different names for the same mountain. Others believe they are two different mountains, and still others think that perhaps one side of the mountain was called Horeb and the other side was called Sinai.. May the dear Father bless and keep youNum 6:24 The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: Num 6:25 The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: Num 6:26 The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. till you arrive at the full likenessEph 4:13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

As ever
