My dear Student

YoursEditorial Note: This letter is not extant. received. I am very grateful to you for the faithfulness and energy you give to the work in which we are interested and claim to be advancing as Christian Scientist

I did laugh, darling, when I read how nicely you rewarded evil with good in that horse carEditorial Note: A “horse car” was a streetcar that ran on rails and was pulled by horses and occasionally by mules. ride I only wish I had been with you.

Now my regret is that I did not call on you for I was in Boston that day shopping, and the only reason was that I thought I had seen and talked with you so recently I should hardly interest you again so soon.

But I expect to be in Boston tomorrow Tues. and will call if you are to be at home

I have seen Mr. Manley and will tell you all about it I thank you so much for what you are doing; and dear child I need not say this for every good deed is a note from God on interest for you

I can keep your bank stock, but the Love and Life divine keeps an immortal Ledger and I trust you are filling it with records

God bless you and your husband My prayer is that you will be happy together that he will do his duty and you and dear Warren will rejoice in a loving and responsible husband and father

Ever lovingly

The taxes coal and repairs on building, and bookEditorial Note: This is probably a reference to the third edition of Mary Baker Eddy’s book, Science and Health, which was published on August 17, 1881. have drained me. But not for that would I teach this ScienceEditorial Note: Christian Science.
