Signs of the Times

[Review of "The Life of Mary Baker Eddy," by Sibyl Wilbur, in the Herald, Sewickley, Pennsylvania]

When a group of loyal friends and students, troubled at repeated unfriendly attacks made by critics upon Mrs. Eddy, desired their Leader's permission to purchase, read, and circulate her life-story as related by Sibyl Wilbur, Mrs. Eddy's reply included these words (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 298): "I briefly declare that nothing has occurred in my life's experience which, if correctly narrated and understood, could injure me; and not a little is already reported of the good accomplished therein, the self-sacrifice, etc., that has distinguished all my working years." It is, then, safe to assume that Mrs. Eddy was willing to let the facts speak for themselves. And this precisely is what Miss Wilbur has done.
