Mrs. Eddy Talks

This interview was later republished in The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany: My. 341:17-346:17

THE following account of an interview with the Rev. Mary Baker G. Eddy, Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, appeared in the New York Herald, May I, 1901. The report will be read with interest by the many readers of the Sentinel, and the honest investigator of Christian Science will find that many false rumors which have come to his ears are without foundation.

The Herald's report of the interview was as follows:—

CONCORD, N. H., Tuesday, April 30, 1901.—Christian Science has been so much to the fore of late that unusual public interest centres in the personality of Mrs. Mary Baker Eddy, the Founder of the cult, and in her opinions on the matters which have brought her followers in opposition to state laws and the public opinion behind those laws. More than that, unkind rumors, started doubtless by the unfriendly, have made Mrs. Eddy a myth. She died long ago, said some; she is living but bedridden, said others, and her place is taken by another woman whenever it is a question of a public appearance.
