Editorial Title: Sarah A. Neall to Asa Gilbert Eddy, May 2, 1882
Author: Sarah A. Neall 
Recipient: Asa Gilbert Eddy 
Date: May 2, 1882
Manuscript Description: Handwritten by Sarah A. Neall on lined paper from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Editorial Note: Neall is responding to a letter from Asa Gilbert Eddy (not extant). She tells Eddy that the Christian Science treatments her husband, Charles H. Neall, has been receiving from Eddy have not been successful in curing his rheumatism. He is just as affected by it as before and is very discouraged. They are considering calling in another physician. She describes her husband's symptoms and suffering. He has been faithfully reading Science and Health. Neall does not know what to say about her husband's case and reiterates that he is not improving under Asa Gilbert Eddy's treatment. Even though Neall had written Eddy an encouraging letter about her own case (not extant), and she had shown it to her husband to encourage him, she reports that she has also not been healed of one of her ailments yet. She has pain in her head and foot and shortness of breath. She has kept her ailments to herself and has not told her husband about them, as she fears that hearing about them would cause him to give up in despair. She feels that surely there ought to be some improvement. Her son's neck opens and discharges just the same as it did before Eddy treated him. She does not want to be skeptical about the wonderful cures Eddy has brought about for others, but she wants to know why Eddy is not able to help her family. Friends have heard that her husband has a wonderful doctor from Boston curing him, and they are shocked when they see his condition and feel he has been tricked. Neall mentions some friends who are going to Boston soon to investigate the matter. The Nealls feel they have paid Eddy a great deal of money without a good result.
