It has been determined to create a Columbian Liberty Bell, to be placed by the lovers of liberty and peace in 6the most appropriate place in the coming World’s Expo‐sition at Chicago. After the close of the Exhibition this bell will pass from place to place throughout the world 9as a missionary of freedom, coming first to the capital of the nation under the care of our society.
Then it will go to Bunker Hill or Liberty Island, to 12the battle-field of New Orleans (1812), to San Francisco, to the place where any great patriotic celebration is being held, until 1900, when it will be sent to the next World’s 15Exhibition, which takes place at Paris, France. There it will continue until that Exhibition closes.
When not in use in other places, it will return to Wash‐18ington under the care of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Washington will be its home, and from there it will journey from place to place, fulfilling its mission 21throughout the world.
The following is the proposed use of the bell: It shall ring at sunrise and sunset; at nine o’clock in the morn‐24ing on the anniversaries of the days on which great events have occurred marking the world’s progress toward liberty; at twelve o’clock on the birthdays of the “creators of 27liberty;” and at four o’clock it will toll on the anniver‐saries of their death. (It will always ring at nine o’clock on October 11th, in recognition of the organization on 30that day of the Daughters of the American Revolution.) . . . The responsibility of its production, and the direc‐tion of its use, have been placed in the hands of a 305 305:1committee of women representing each State and Ter‐ritory, one representative from each Republic in the 3world, and a representative from the patriotic societies, — Daughters and Sons of the American Revolution, the Lyceum League of America, the Society of Ger‐6man Patriots, the Human Freedom League, and kindred organizations.
The National Board of Management has placed upon 9me the responsibility of representing the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution upon the General Committee, and this circular is sent to every 12member of the society, asking for her personal coopera‐tion in making the undertaking successful. In creating the bell it is particularly desired that the largest number 15of persons possible shall have a part in it. For this reason small contributions from many persons are to be asked for, rather than large contributions from a few. They 18are to be of two kinds: —
Second: Of money with which to pay for the bell. 24Each member of the society is asked to contribute one cent to be fused into the bell, and twenty-five cents to pay for it. She is also asked to collect two dollars from 27others, in pennies, if possible, and send with the amount the name of each contributor. In order that the bell shall be cast April 30th, the anniversary of the inaugu‐30ration of George Washington as the first President of the United States, we ask every one receiving this cir‐cular to act at once.306
12 Contributions should be sent to the Liberty National Bank, corner Liberty and West Streets, New York, and a duplicate letter written, as a notification of the same, 15to Miss Mary Desha, 1505 Penna. Ave., Washington, D.C., or to Miss Minnie F. Mickley, Mickleys, Pa.
We would add, as being of interest, that Mrs. Eddy is 18a member of the above organization, having been made such by the special request of the late Mrs. Harrison, wife of the ex-President, who was at that time the Presi‐21dent thereof. — Ed.
When angels visit us, we do not hear the rustle of wings, 24nor feel the feathery touch of the breast of a dove; but we know their presence by the love they create in our hearts. Oh, may you feel this touch, — it is not the 27clasping of hands, nor a loved person present; it is more than this: it is a spiritual idea that lights your path! The Psalmist saith: “He shall give His angels charge 307 307:1over thee.” God gives you His spiritual ideas, and in turn, they give you daily supplies. Never ask for to-3morrow: it is enough that divine Love is an ever-present help; and if you wait, never doubting, you will have all you need every moment. What a glorious inheritance 6is given to us through the understanding of omnipresent Love! More we cannot ask: more we do not want: more we cannot have. This sweet assurance is the 9“Peace, be still” to all human fears, to suffering of every sort.
