Mrs. Eddy's Successor

This article was later republished in The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany: My. 346:18-347:5

We desire to correct an error which inadvertently appeared in the following statement by Mrs. Eddy as it was published on page 604 of the Sentinel for May 23, 1901.

Various conjectures having arisen as to whether she had in mind any particular person when the statement was made, Mrs. Eddy gave the following to the Associated Press, May 16, 1901:—

"Great Masterpieces."
