Dear Brother and SisterEditorial Note: Early Christian Scientists often referred to each other as “brother” and “sister.” in ScienceEditorial Note: Christian Science

If you accede to the proposition we will muster our forces on Saturday next at 7 ½ A.M. will meet you and Miss Brown at Rowley Depot to take the same train to Newburyport we shall need the day before us, without leading any to suspect us can you ascertain whether that will be a day for Spofford to be in his office and if it is not, let us know between this and friday night. If we go up to meet the enemy we must as soldiers of the Lord fight until the victory is won and to charge in bayonet contest unflinchingly I think you would not be excused but desire to tell the whole truth feeling it but duty in this case and only duty performed brings victory and sets the captive freeIsa 61:1 The spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

Truly Yours
