The Test of Character

There is no better test of character than the estimate in which one is held in his own neighborhood, city, or state, among his immediate friends and associates. They have means and opportunities of knowing and measuring one's worth, or lack of worth, not possessed by others.

It is certain, therefore, that he who stands well with his neighbors,—with those who know him best,—be he humble and obscure or great and distinguished, is worthy the respect and confidence of all others, and in due measure will have it.

We who know intimately the facts and circumstances surrounding the private life and character of the Rev. Mary Baker G. Eddy, are glad to have that life and character gauged by this test, as well as by that of her worldwide career as a religious evangelist, and the faithful servant of God in establishing a system of healing Truth for the benefit of her fellow-beings.
