Mistake Corrected

WE republish from The Daily Patriot of Concord, N. H., the following letter from Mrs. Eddy: —

Dear Editor : — In reference to two reports that found their way into the kindly notices of the press relative to this year's State Fair in Concord, I beg to say: One mistake that was made last year was repeated this year, namely that our governor invited me. The invitation came from the officers of the Fair Association; and my small gift to the children came from my love for children, and it would have pleased me not to have had that gift emphasized. I find it more troublesome to be overrated publicly than underrated, since conscience requires a bit of my time to correct the former, while happily the latter old time will correct.

Mary Baker G. Eddy.
