Mrs. Eddy was in her ninetieth year
Knoxville (Tenn.) Sentinel
Mrs. Eddy was in her ninetieth year. Her old age had been serene and beautiful. Whatever may be the final word about her creed, its favorable influence on her own life can hardly be disputed. Mrs. Eddy suffered much from ill health until past the average of life. Her life-work began in 1866, when she was forty-five years of age, but it was ten years before the first Christian Science association was founded.
Mrs. Eddy has been a center of many controversies. It may be too early now to see her without partiality or prejudice, but few will deny that here was a unique personality, a buoyant courage, and an indomitable will. Her life differed from that of most noteworthy women. Its failures were in her youth, its successes were in her riper years. She found herself when approaching fifty. It was twenty years longer before she made the world admit her success. She will have no successor, for her position was that of a "founder."
