In "Rational Viewpoint" in your issue of August 15, various statements gave a misleading impression of Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science. Among these was the implication that Mrs. Eddy was "a sickly, suffering victim of disease most of her life."

Although Mrs. Eddy was seriously troubled with invalidism and sickness prior to her discovery of Christian Science in 1866, that important event changed her physical condition. She was then healed instantaneously of the effects of an accident regarded as fatal by the physicians and, to use her own words, "ever after was in better health than I had before enjoyed" (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 24).
