Mr. Soper
Dear Sir,

Not long since I wrote you that Science and Health would be forwarded to you. Have not heard from you on the subject On perusing the hard matter how do you relish it, is it "sweet in the mouth" and bitter thereafterRev 10:8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth. Rev 10:9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey. Rev 10:10 And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. ?

I hope not; the Master assures us us his "yoke is easy" and those who come unto him, if weary, will find restMatt 11:28 ¶Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matt 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. Matt 11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. . What that book teaches, gave me the only rest I ever found.

Yours truly
Mary B. Glover
