Editorial Title: Susanna L. Durant to Mary Baker Eddy, October 2, 1881
Author: Susanna L. Durant 
Recipient: Mary Baker Eddy 
Date: October 2, 1881
Manuscript Description: Handwritten by Susanna L. Durant on lined paper from Roslindale, Massachusetts.
Editorial Note: Durant is responding to a letter from Eddy (not extant) and explains at length how she feels Christian Science can benefit her in her position as a school teacher. She wants to introduce Christian Science into the Boston schools, and, in particular, she wants to show through Christian Science that children can be properly taught without corporal punishment. She mentions that several other teachers are watching her closely to see if she succeeds. She writes that she is determined to succeed and then make her work known to others. She believes that if Christian Science starts with the children, the next generation will be stronger, purer and happier. She is satisfied in the work she is doing and hopes to tell Eddy more about it at some point. She also asks about Sunday School, which she feels would benefit her students.
