My dear Mrs Whiting

When I mailed your letterEditorial Note: This letter is not extant. yesterday my husband had gone to see my Printer on businessEditorial Note: John Wilson of the University Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts, printed the third edition of Mary Baker Eddy’s book, Science and Health. It was published on August 17, 1881. When he returned I found things had taken such a turn that I must devote one besides my Sunday services calls etc etc. As Written: etc to composition and proof reading

That will put off my classEditorial Note: This class was not held until spring 1881. Abbie K. Whiting was not in the class, but was in Eddy’s September 1881 class. a month longer I am more than sorry ever to change after I appoint a class but you all want my next editionEditorial Note: The third edition of Science and Health, published on August 17, 1881. and I must get it done when the Printer can do it and that he says isEditorial Note: it is nowEditorial Note: The third edition of Science and Health was not published until August 17, 1881.

One thing let me name owing to the wicked ones I have thought it would be an advantage to my student to join our Association before they enter the class and then we could guard them better So here is a cordial invitation for you to join us one week from today here at my house or our next meeting which will be here on the 26th inst We have them once a fortnight at 7 o. c. P. M. You can name it to Mr Chase and come with him

One dollarEditorial Note: $1.00 in 1881 is the equivalent of $25.23 in 2016. for admittance 50ctsEditorial Note: Fifty cents in 1881 is the equivalent of $12.61 in 2016. per quarter

I hope it will make no difference with you about the time of the class for then we shall have more members by waiting There is a gentleman of Boston whom I think is a great acquisition to our number that will enter then

Yours very truly
M. B. G. Eddy
