Sir,

Desiring at once to relieve your anxiety, I beg to assure you I am quite "calm", that I still live and am attending to any "elevated pursuitsAs Written:persuits," and trust I have not seriously interfered with your leather business. On receipt of your elaborate literary productionEditorial Note: Johnson's reply (the "elaborate literary production") to Eddy's letter to him (L14509) is not extant., in reply to my simple request, I was assured my fence is in future "inviolable," sacred, a shrine of friendship? Your gentlemanly reply to a woman gives me a profound sense of my neighbor's guardianshipEditorial Note: Joseph Johnson was Mary Baker Eddy's neighbor at this time. She lived at 8 Broad Street in Lynn, Massachusetts. He lived at 12 Broad Street., and my indebtedness to such kindly feelings entertained for me.

I fear, however, there are none at hand of sufficiently elevated character to arbitrate our case.

Most humbly
