Editorial Title: Lucretia S. Brown to Mary Baker Eddy, May 17, 1881
Author: Lucretia S. Brown 
Recipient: Mary Baker Eddy 
Date: May 17, 1881
Manuscript Description: Handwritten by Lucretia S. Brown on lined paper from Ipswich, Massachusetts.
Editorial Note: Brown provides more detail in this letter about how she became involved in the malpractice case against Spofford. She says she is sure that Eddy did not advise her to bring the case against Spofford, and that Eddy objected to it when it was first mentioned in Brown's hearing. Later, she was visited in Salem by Dr. Eddy and Arens. She says that Arens asked her many questions and she was led to believe from Dr. Eddy that she should answer them. Brown thought that Eddy had changed her mind and approved of bringing the case against Spofford. She says she was opposed to it but was overpersuaded since it was presented in the light of duty for the good of the cause. She writes of her strong desire to demonstrate in healing the sick and of the challenges she faces. She says she tries to keep her sorrows and disappointments to herself, but when Eddy asks if she is happy and well she has to say that she is not.
