The opinion expressed by a speaker quoted in a recent...
The opinion expressed by a speaker quoted in a recent issue, concerning Mrs. Eddy, is wholly at variance with the opinions of those who have had actual knowledge of her. When Mrs. Eddy removed her residence from Concord to a suburb of Boston, the city council of the New Hampshire capital adopted resolutions expressing regret at her departure. The Governor of New Hampshire, in a recent public address in Boston, referred to Mrs. Eddy as "the Granite State's greatest woman," and said: "She has left the impression of her work not only on New England but on the entire world, and we are proud of her."
Clara Barton, founder of the Red Cross Society, paid this tribute to the Leader of Christian Science: "Mrs. Eddy should have the respect, admiration, and love of the whole nation, for she is its greatest woman." Many other distinguished men and women have attested their high regard for Mrs. Eddy and her achievement, and the number of those who through lack of knowledge still regard her and her work with disapproval or even indifference, is daily diminishing. In less than fifty years Christian Science has become a worldwide religious movement. Today it has approximately fifteen hundred church organizations, some of which are to be found in every civilized country; a part of its literature is obtainable in seven languages, and its text-book has enjoyed a larger sale than that of any other book ever printed except the Bible. Needless to say, Christian Science is well past the stage where untempered abuse can interfere with its progress.
