I send two more pamphlets having come across As Written: accross them accidentally. I was pleased with the lady you sent here last evening I hope you will get her to study. Send me some Students if you can. We must be balancing the crowds forming against Truth by the imposterEditorial Note: The “imposter” here likely refers to Edward J. Arens.. Have you seen the new pamphletEditorial Note: The “new pamphlet” was The Understanding of Christianity, or God. Edward J. Arens was named as its author, but the pamphlet was a revision of Aren’s pamphlet, The Science of the Relation Between God and Man and the Distinction Between Spirit and Matter, which had appeared in late 1880. Both pamphlets were filled with plagiarisms of Mary Baker Eddy’s published writings. Arens has stolen from my hard labors and put his name to it? I suppose his wife whom I cured from hopeless disease is helping him steal from me!

I write at this time especially to ask you to get me a few certificates of cures or benefits received from reading Science And Health I want to put them in the blank leaves at the close of this editionEditorial Note: This is a reference to the third edition of Science and Health, which was published on August 17, 1881.

As Ever
