The Concord (N. H.) Patriot

Pleasant View, Concord, N. H., May 14, 1906. To the Editor of The Patriot:

Such exaggerated prominence has been given by the press of the country to the gift of a six-thousand-dollar span of horses to the Rev. Mary Baker G. Eddy, that a plain statement of the facts is due the public. As Mrs. Eddy's Associate Secretary. I am familiar with every phase of the transaction from its incipiency until now.

About a month ago, Mr. T. L. L. Temple of Texarkana, Ark., a Christian Scientist, addressed Mrs. Eddy in reference to presenting to her the span of bays, Tattersall and Eckersall. Mrs. Eddy was naturally gratified by this expression of Southern chivalry, but her decision was to thank Mr. Temple for his kindness, to take the will for the deed and not accept his proffer.
