Editorial Title: Lucinda M. Reeves to Mary Baker Eddy, January 15, 1882
Author: Lucinda M. Reeves 
Recipient: Mary Baker Eddy 
Date: January 15, 1882
Manuscript Description: Handwritten by Lucinda M. Reeves on embossed lined paper from Washington, D.C.
Editorial Note: In this letter, Reeves tells Mary Baker Eddy of her search for appropriate housing for herself and for Mary Baker Eddy and Asa Gilbert Eddy when they visit Washington, D.C. She also mentions the upcoming annual convention of the National Women's Suffrage Association and suggests that Eddy might like to be in D.C. to attend it. The rest of the letter is primarily concerned with informing Eddy of laws governing medical practice in Washington, D.C., which it seems Eddy may have asked her about. Reeves writes that she has spoken with two magnetic healers, or magnetic physicians, and has learned the law only applies to physicians prescribing medicine. Both healers she spoke with said they have had no trouble in their years of practice. One magnetic physician, however, did mention that only physicians with the degree of M.D. may legally demand payment from their patients. She closes with a description of a few more housing options and mentions that she will continue looking.
