Editorial Title: Lucretia S. Brown to Mary Baker Eddy, August 7, 1881
Author: Lucretia S. Brown 
Recipient: Mary Baker Eddy 
Date: August 7, 1881
Manuscript Description: Handwritten by Lucretia S. Brown on lined paper from Ipswich, Massachusetts.
Editorial Note: Brown, who is currently hosting Alice Sibley, writes to say that she decided to send her own letter rather than include a message in the letter from Alice. Brown says that she is sorry she didn't get to see Eddy the last time she was passing through Lynn, but as she knew it was not a good day for Eddy, she thought it best not to. She expresses her pain, however, that she is not one of the favored few who is able to help Eddy when she is in trouble. She does not think that Eddy has a more loving student than she is, although she is not as demonstrative as some. But she also does not want to impose on Eddy if she cannot be helpful to her. Brown calls Eddy "the leading martyr for the world," and she believes that Eddy will gain the victory despite her trials. She has found in her own experience that once she has gained the victory, past trials seem to be nothing. Brown writes of a difficulty she experienced the past week and how she prayed. She also mentions how much she values caring for her aging mother and how her mother is also adopting more of the teachings of Christian Science than she had ever hoped for. She expresses her pleasure that her sister will soon be meeting with Eddy as well. She closes by mentioning Alice's visit again and her wish that Eddy could join them someday while Alice is there.
