Editorial Title: George D. Choate to Mary Baker Eddy, June 28, 1880
Author: George D. Choate 
Recipient: Mary Baker Eddy 
Date:
Manuscript Description: Handwritten by George D. Choate on lined paper from Bethel, Maine.
Editorial Note: In this letter, George D. Choate is concerned that he and his wife, Clara E. Choate, will have to pay the entirety of the rent on 551 Shawmut Avenue in Boston, where Mary Baker Eddy and Asa Gilbert Eddy had been living, along with Clara and son, Warren. The Eddys were preparing to move out of the property and spend July and August of 1880 in Concord, New Hampshire. Choate opens the letter by saying to Eddy, "Are you mad?" He continues by saying that he and his wife signed the lease for 551 Shawmut Avenue so that the Eddys would have a secure place to live. (They had been evicted from previous lodgings in the Boston area.) Choate states that even though he and his wife hold the lease on the property, the Eddys are honor bound to pay their share of the rent and not put the responsibility on the Choates.
