   In a recent interview which appeared in the columns
of the New York Herald, the Rev. Mary Baker Eddy,
Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, stated that
her successor would be a man.  Various conjectures
having arisen as to whether she had in mind any particular
person when the statement was made, Mrs. Eddy
gave the following to the Associated Press, May 16,
1901: -

   "I did say that a man would be my future successor.
By this I did not mean any man to-day on earth.
   "Science and Health makes it plain to all Christian
Scientists that the manhood and womanhood of God

MY 347

have already been revealed in a degree through Christ
Jesus and Christian Science, His two witnesses.  What
remains to lead on the centuries and reveal my successor,
is man in the image and likeness of the Father-Mother
God, man the generic term for mankind."
