Editorial Title: Hanover P. Smith to Mary Baker Eddy, May 1, 1883
Author: Hanover P. Smith 
Recipient: Mary Baker Eddy 
Date: May 1, 1883
Manuscript Description: Handwritten by Hanover P. Smith from Lowell, Massachusetts.
Editorial Note: Smith writes that he received a letter (not extant) from Mary Baker Eddy, and a few minutes after receiving it, he felt her spiritual presence with him as he always does whenever her thoughts are resting on him. He assures Eddy that she is doing as great a work as Jesus Christ and that just as Jesus could only be crucified once, the end of the Eddy v. Arens lawsuit will be the end of Eddy's crucifixion. "Those fellows" (the mental malpractitioners Richard Kennedy, Daniel H. Spofford, and Edward J. Arens) will have done all they can do. Their efforts are powerless to stop the onward march of Truth. When Eddy's history is before the world in future years, she will be given honors greater than those given President Abraham Lincoln. Smith would like Eddy to come and spend the last week of June through the middle of September in Saratoga (likely New York) with him and Alice M. Sibley or "Miss Proctor" (probably Louise A. Proctor) without anyone, especially the mental malpractitioners, knowing where she is. Smith implies that if Eddy comes to Saratoga she will find people there who can become interested in Christian Science.
