Editorial Title: Alice M. Sibley to Mary Baker Eddy, August 24, 1881
Author: Alice M. Sibley 
Recipient: Mary Baker Eddy 
Date: August 24, 1881
Manuscript Description: Handwritten by Alice M. Sibley on lined paper from Roxbury, Massachusetts.
Editorial Note: Sibley writes a long, largely light-hearted letter in response to Eddy's recent letter (L11204). She thanks Eddy and says that she will try not to let receiving a letter from Eddy "spoil" her. She regrets that Eddy has had no true vacation and has to work so hard while others enjoy the benefits of her work. She writes that Eddy is celebrating Sibley's birthday, if unconsciously, because her birthday happens to be the same day as the opening of a class at the Massachusetts Metaphysical College. She writes that Eddy's "naughty, wayward child of 'sweet sixteen'" will soon become a girl of "charming seventeen." She invites Eddy to call on her and her mother if she is in Boston. She says that in a week she will need to get to work, but for now she is trying to "get her wild oats sown" while she can (although she thinks it is doubtful that she will, since she is not inclined much that way).
