The life of Mrs. Eddy was one of singular purity, and her entire career is peculiarly an open book. This is true because there is nothing to conceal. Friends have written the truth concerning her history, and others have vainly sought to detract. Mrs. Eddy's experiences have been fully narrated in her biography by Sibyl Wilbur, and in a later comprehensive biography from the pen of Dr. Lyman P. Powell, an eminent Episcopal clergyman. Also, many phases of Mrs. Eddy's history are set forth in one of her own works, "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" (see Chapter XVII).

Fair-minded inquirers are invited to form their own conclusions by a perusal of any or all of the books mentioned, which may be found in the public libraries or borrowed without cost from any Christian Science Reading Room. Spiritual enlightenment is forcing a recognition of the fact that no element of Truth can be impaired by misrepresentation. The mighty works of reformation which follow in the train of Mrs. Eddy's teachings speak for her life of loving sacrifice. "Ye shall know them by their fruits," said Jesus, and this inspired statement has never been annulled.
