A LETTER BY MRS. EDDY



  To the Board of Trustees, First Church of Christ, Scientist,
                                        New York City

   Beloved Brethren: - In consideration of the present
momentous question at issue in First Church of Christ,
Scientist, New York City, I am constrained to say, if I
can settle this church difficulty amicably by a few words,
as many students think I can, I herewith cheerfully
subscribe these words of love: -
   My beloved brethren in First Church of Christ, Scientist,
New York City, I advise you with all my soul to
support the Directors of The Mother Church, and unite
with those in your church who are supporting The Mother
Church Directors.  Abide in fellowship with and obedience
to The Mother Church, and in this way God will
bless and prosper you.  This I know, for He has proved
it to me for forty years in succession.
                                        Lovingly yours,
                                        Mary Baker Eddy
                                        Brookline, Mass.,
                                        November 13, 1909

The text here given is that of the original letter as sent by
Mrs. Eddy, and published in the Christian Science Sentinel of

December 4, 1909, at Mrs. Eddy's request, with the words "in Truth"
