Recipient: Mary Baker Eddy 
Date: March 23, 1879
Manuscript Description: Handwritten by Eldridge J. Smith on printed stationery that identifies him as "Mechanician and Solicitor of Patents" in Washington, D.C.
Editorial Note: Smith tells Mary Baker Eddy that he is very glad to receive her letter of March 19, 1879 (see L02051Click link to view L02051 document in new window). Smith and his wife have frequently spoken of Eddy to each other and she has always had their love and good wishes. He tells her he has received a newspaper article about the resolution of the conspiracy to murder case, and he rejoices in the complete vindication of Asa Gilbert Eddy and Edward J. Arens. He is glad that Mary Baker Eddy is teaching the truth that will bless humanity. Smith mentions some recent inventions of his: a reclining chair and a revolving bookcase. He says that he has been under a cloud financially and physically but is improving in both areas. He feels that he soon may be meeting Eddy in person as his business travels are likely to take him to New England. Smith wants to be useful and show others the way to Life and Truth and to find and follow that way himself.
