Editorial Title: Harriet A. Curtis to Mary Baker Eddy, January 31, 1881
Author: Harriet A. Curtis 
Recipient: Mary Baker Eddy 
Date: January 31, 1881
Manuscript Description: Handwritten by Harriet A. Curtis on lined paper from Quincy, Massachusetts.
Editorial Note: Curtis writes to thank Eddy for her sermons, which she has heard the last two Sundays. She says that they are the most beautiful she has ever heard. Curtis also wants to testify for Mrs. Stackpole, who she says is a quiet metaphysician but doing great work. Curtis describes her experience with nervous prostration and how she was not able to sleep without the help of medicines. Once she felt God's power to heal, she began to improve, and then she met Mrs. Stackpole, who has continued to help her. Curtis is worried, however, about a relapse of the problem, especially since so many people in Quincy know of her situation. She says that every time she fears she'll be overtaken, she writes to Mrs. Stackpole, and she finds that writing out her thoughts helps her to feel uplifted. She expects that at some point there will no longer be a trace of the problem. Curtis explains that she is writing to Eddy because she thought Eddy might like to know where her case now stands, as it was so severe. She doesn't expect a response, but she wishes God's blessings on Eddy and her work.
