Concord (N. H.) Monitor

Whether one agrees or disagrees with the Christian Science faith in its concept and practice, few, we think, will deny to the Founder of that church the laurels of greatness and the right to be called "a wonderful woman."

Study the story of her life as written by friend or foe,—the impartial pose toward her seems to have been a very difficult one to maintain,—and every careful and thoughtful reader must be impressed with what Mrs. Eddy accomplished in her old age, for the dawning of her success was not much more than twenty-five years ago and she was eighty-nine when she died. The permanence or brevity of the spiritual empire she created, the extent of her influence upon modern thought and life, will be justly valued soon by time, the great appraiser. Whatever that verdict may be, the memory of Mrs. Mary Baker Eddy will long be cherished in Concord, the city which by her and through her has been so much beautified and benefited.
