My dear Student,

I have heard from your kind offer to Mrs. Davis now that and no other way will raise you to sudden healing. Help her also to see you are sorry for all that is wrong in the past and will live in days to come meekly and godly in this evil world.

Did you attend the Conference meeting at Mrs. Potter's, what a term for it! What did Mrs. Reed go there for? if to benefit herself why does she not attend church? if to benefit others why does she not send them to church?

Do you not remember the quarrels all the time in our AssociationEditorial Note: Christian Scientist Association before she left? Now we have nothing of the sort, and do you not remember how few attended? now we have a large attendance; yet she claims we want to get her back, or makes her husband think that if I am rightly informed

Are those meetings going to do any good? I could not have withheld my consent for then they would have laid all the charge to me of their idleness in the true labors of Life

Hope you are doing splendidly in all things for yourself and others You remember I told the church I should not state my price do they think I am worth anything I hear nothing from them

Lovingly
M B G Eddy

Wont you dear be a good girl and love Mrs Hart and show her that you are a Christian As Written: christian under all circumstances Now take my advice and see how it will help you heal the sick

Wont you be careful not to give Mr Howard occasion to think you malpractice You have no reason to not love him and wont you let him never think you get his patients
