The tone of the press, as shown in editorial comments...
The tone of the press, as shown in editorial comments on the death of Mrs. Eddy, is a most encouraging indication of religious tolerance, as well as indicating the commanding position achieved by this teacher of righteousness. The attitude of the press in this instance shows plainly that any religious philosophy that has in it the elements of sincerity and of practical application to daily life, any religious belief or form that is helpful, is sure to be treated with toleration. It must, of course, stand the test of time to achieve permanent recognition as a distinct form, but toleration begins long before this point of recognition is reached. Mrs. Eddy's personality had perhaps something to do with the kindly expressions from every quarter of the globe on the occasion of her death, but the foundation of them was in nearly every instance the quality of her work. Mrs. Eddy's work and her philosophy of religion and of life is not as generally understood as we believe it should be, and we take pleasure in reproducing some of the many editorial comments that have come to hand touching her life and its influence on society. These excerpts are but samples of the wide-spread comment occasioned by the death of this great character, whom the world needs to know more intimately in order that she may meet with deserved appreciation.
