Accession: 142.23.003
Editorial Title: Alice M. Sibley to Mary Baker Eddy, July 3, 1881
Author: Alice M. Sibley 
Recipient: Mary Baker Eddy 
Date: July 3, 1881
Manuscript Description: Handwritten by Alice M. Sibley on lined paper from Roxbury, Massachusetts.
Editorial Note: Sibley writes to Eddy about her high school graduation ceremonies, wishing Eddy could have attended. She mentions that Mrs. Choate and Miss Brown came and also took tea with her. Sibley references an enclosed copy of the graduation program (142.23.004) and hopes sometime to share the essay she presented with Eddy. She also describes the annual school festival, but she mentions that the dancing was cut short due to the "national calamity" (President James Garfield was shot on July 2, 1881). She continues by discussing how reports had shifted from fear that the President would die to describing an unexpected revival. Sibley indicates her belief that Eddy must have brought "the power of Truth to bear upon him." She says she hopes that Eddy might heal President Garfield, in the same way she once did a foreign prince, but then immediately asks Eddy's pardon if she has offended by suggesting this. She closes by saying she hopes to be of material service to Eddy soon and signs off as "your own 'wayward Alice.'"
