Editorial Title: Julia S. Bartlett to Mary Baker Eddy, September 27, 1880
Author: Julia S. Bartlett 
Recipient: Mary Baker Eddy 
Date: September 27, 1880
Manuscript Description: Handwritten by Julia S. Bartlett on lined paper from Newburyport, Massachusetts. The letter includes what appear to be archivist notes interpreting some words throughout the letter.
Editorial Note: Bartlett says that she has received a letter from Eddy (not extant), and that she is sorry that Eddy has formed such a false impression of her. She had written her last letter to Eddy (not extant) hurriedly as she wanted to get it to the post office in time to go out with the next mail. Most of the letter concerns Bartlett's financial struggles. She is planning to study Christian Science with Eddy, and she wishes she could pay the full fee of $300 (the equivalent of $7432.85 in 2015), because she knows the benefit that will be gained from taking class. However, she feels she can pay $100 (the equivalent of $2477.62 in 2015). Bartlett states that she wants to make the practice of Christian Science her lifework, and that she is willing to deny herself anything and go anywhere in order to do this. She will do it soon if she can support herself. Her only desire for making money is to be able to use it to help others.
