Your letterEditorial Note: This letter is not extant. came duly and was pleased to hear from you once more Dr Spofford was here on Sabbath last and said he had a letter also and I might answer his — mine with his kind remembrances You can have the bookEditorial Note: Science and Health and it shall be forwarded to you your percentage for selling is 33 1/3 centsEditorial Note: 33 cents in 1875 is the equivalent of $7.01 in 2014. making you 83 1/3 centsEditorial Note: 83 cents in 1875 is the equivalent of $17.64 in 2014. on a book

The Dr. (Spofford) is so entirely occupied he has no time to write or do anything else but work for the sick and our glorious cause

I have just received from "Harvard University a polite card of thanks for the BookEditorial Note: Science and Health I gave the library of that College

We will consider you a local agentEditorial Note: Soon after Mary Baker Eddy's book, Science and Health, was published in October 1875, one of the ways she distributed the book was to offer some of her students commissions to sell it. She referred to these students as "local agents." For example, a student could make around 33 cents ($7.01 in 2014) on each copy of Science and Health he or she sold. Eddy intended the retail price for Science and Health to be $3.00 ($63.76 in 2014) but there is evidence that some copies were damaged and sold for $1.00 ($21.25 in 2014). for the Book.

Yours truly and in haste
