I did not intend to discourage you when you were here only to caution you so that you might make your work as easy As Written: easey as possible, in regard to your cold's belief or belief of a cold. I think you will master that it is a belief that is imposing itself upon many and often this winter and you must not think that be cause a second belief of cold came to see you that you did not get rid of the first, They come this way often but I do not think of keeping them overnight it is too expensive beside they always want the best bed and I want that myself and that is for spof, I keep a bed not of pinfeathers but of pins without the feathers for him.

Now we know there are no beliefs, that God and his Idea is there is and there is nothing to take cold and no cold to take and I know that you are conscious of being able to conquer any number of nothings whether their name be nothing a cold or Spof when hairs got to growing down my throat I concluded As Written: councluded they were growing the wrong way and turned them round I have had to turn them round several times within the last month and you can do the same thing you and Mrs. Choate can do any thing you try to do only have patience and not think because you have to beat the second time that you have not beaten at all; to beat once alone is to you and to any one worth more than to be helped a great many times and you are just the one to do that for you know that you are master of your body. Mrs. Eddy's Lecture last Sunday was largely attended and she is to Lecture at the same place in two weeks from that time her Subject last sunday was the coming of Christ and you lost much by not being present you will excuse me for writing in Mrs. Eddy’s stead she did not get time and wished me to do so. Should you be able to get a double parlor for to commence As Written: comence Lecturing in I should think it would do I do not remember hearing Mrs. Eddy give her opinion and she is now sleeping for it is almost eleven P.M. Please remember me to your husband accepting to your self my true esteem and Mrs. Eddy send her love

Truly Yours
A. G Eddy
