Brooklyn (N. Y.) Eagle

The decision of the New Hampshire supreme court, declining to interfere with the trust created by the will of the late Mrs. Mary Baker Eddy, will be generally regarded as just. Mrs. Eddy, because of the faith of her followers, was able to pile up a property of something like two million dollars in her own name. She left it nearly all in trust for The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston. Her son by a former marriage contested the will. The court says:—

"Mrs. Eddy had the constitutional right to entertain such opinions as she chose, and to make a religion of them, and to teach them to all others, and their rights of belief are as extensive as hers. Her legal right to teach was not ended with her death."
