Editorial Title: Eldridge J. Smith to Mary Baker Eddy, November 16, 1881
Author: Eldridge J. Smith 
Recipient: Mary Baker Eddy 
Date: November 16, 1881
Manuscript Description: Handwritten by Eldridge J. Smith on lined paper from Washington, D.C.
Editorial Note: Smith tells Mary Baker Eddy that he saw the Librarian of Congress at the Capitol. The Librarian told him that the third edition of Eddy's book, Science and Health, had been received and a certificate issued to her and to no one else. The Librarian further told Smith that it is not customary to issue an official receipt for books received to be copyrighted. Smith goes on to tell Eddy that he is not conversant with the law or rules governing the Congressional Library, but if Eddy wishes, he will contact his lawyer on her behalf and get his opinion. There would be no cost to Eddy for this, but Smith asks her to briefly state the case in a letter to him. He says that he will be glad if he can be of any service to Eddy. Smith and his wife send their kindest regards to Eddy and her husband. In a postcript, he tells Eddy that Lucinda M. Reeves called to see him and his wife, and that they like her very much.
