Atlanta (Ga.) Constitution

One need not be a subscriber to or even a sympathizer with the creed of Christian Science to recognize its Founder, Mrs. Mary Baker Eddy, as a remarkable and achieving figure of history. Founders of religions and creeds there have been in plenty, but not in our day, at least, has there risen one to build so stanch and so phenomenally an increasing following as that which pays tribute to Mrs. Eddy as its originator and Leader.

When all is said and done, it remains that this woman taught and achieved in large measure that conquest of the flesh by the Spirit that is all too sadly needed in an age engrossed with the lure of substance. She disseminated happiness and cheerfulness among men and women, inspired hopefulness to those that were sick of heart and gave many a battle-weary spirit courage to face once more in the direction of the dawn. By whatever term it be described, that accomplishment stands for the furtherance of good and the encouragement of uplift. And, on the personal side, there are elements of greatness in a woman who could win and so persistently hold the love and absolute confidence of a following mounting into the many thousands.
