From the August 1897 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The invitation was  later republished in The First Church of Christ Scientist and Miscellany: My. 169:1-12.  The address was later republished in Miscellaneous Writings 1883-1896: Mis. 251:1-253:11

A memorable Fourth of July, indeed, will be that of Anno Domini, 1897, in the annals of Christian Science. We deem it not boastful to say that never was assembled in celebration of any nation's natal day a more devout or thankful set of people than those who gathered in "concord" at Concord on July 5th last.
