Mrs. Eddy's Horses are Blue Ribbon Winners

Concord (N. H.) Evening Monitor

The following extract from a letter written to Rev. Mary Baker G. Eddy by one of her students, Mrs. M. Bettie Bell of Chicago, relates an interesting episode in which one of Mrs. Eddy's new horses figured. It may be said of this famous show span that Eckersall, the nigh horse, who is trained to the harness only, has never been beaten in the show ring, while Tattersall, the off horse, who is a fine saddle as well as driving horse, has never been beaten but once, and that was under saddle by the famous stallion, Bourbon King.

Chicago, Ill., May 17, 1906.

My Beloved Teacher and Leader:—I do not like to take your valuable time reading letters, but I want to say to you that my niece, Miss Mamie Stone of Georgetown, Kentucky, was invited by the owner of Tattersall to drive him in the ladies' ring at the Elks' fair in July, 1905. The premium was to be given to the finest horse driven by a lady, and Tattersall received the blue ribbon. She little thought when driving him and seeing him honored that her dear Leader would own him.
