Your favorEditorial Note: See Emily M. Meader’s letter to Mary Baker Eddy, dated October 4, 1882 (302.43.003). came duly. My many calls upon my time have hindered an earlier reply.

There was no occasion for the explanation that you made, I had forgotten all about it Accept my thanks for your kind thoughts of me for they are benedictions after toil, and bless me as well as those who entertain them All good and true thought is God's evangel carrying us up to that source and giving us the sweet resources of love

I thought when my dear husband departed I needed more than ever friends, but when I learned that adversity proves our friends I was enabled to turn more utterly to the one sourceEditorial Note: God, and bear the proof of desertion by many who had claimed to be true to me, with patient pardon, and more consecration to Christ. I think you understand what the Christian As Written: christian experience must be, and will join with my conclusion that he loveth those whom he chastenethHeb 12:6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. .

I was pleased to learn you are soon to be dwellers in this CityEditorial Note: Boston, Massachusetts when we can see each other more frequently. I shall have more leisure in Winter and shall enjoy very much seeing yourself and husband at the College rooms

We had a pleasant little number in last evening to sing and play the piano, and the hours passed swiftly

I have on hand the largest class I ever had, and our Sunday As Written: sunday services fill all our rooms with interested hearers. I think in the spring As Written: sping we shall graduate about fifty. The ship of scienceEditorial Note: Christian Science is again walking the wave, rising above the billows, biding defiance to the flood-gates of error, for God is at the helm

Very truly Yours
M. B. G. Eddy

P. S. I shall be pleased to see you whenever you can call
