[Substance of her address at the National Convention in Chicago, June 13. ]

From the August 1888 issue of The Christian Science Journal

This article was later republished in Miscellaneous Writings 1883-1896: Mis. 98:6-106:14

The National Christian Scientist Association has brought us together to minister and to be ministered unto, to mutually aid one another in finding ways and means for helping the whole human family, to quicken and extend the interest already felt in a higher mode of medicine, to watch with eager joy the individual growth of Christian Scientists, and the progress of our common cause in Chicago, — this miracle of the Occident. We come to strengthen and perpetuate our organizations and institutions, and to find strength in union, — strength to build up, through God's right hand, that pure and undefiled religion whose Science demonstrates God and the perfectibility of man.
