A letter in "The Pulse of the Public" (July 1) contains this sentence: "No doubt there was quite a battle on when Telegraph Hill was tapered off with a tower instead of a huge Mary Baker Eddy or Aimee McPherson."

This is wholly false as far as the reference to Mrs. Eddy is concerned. There never has been the slightest agitation, to say nothing of a "battle," for a monument on Telegraph Hill to the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science.

Mrs. Eddy herself said (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 120), "Those who look for me in person, or elsewhere than in my writings, lose me instead of find me," and her followers are mainly interested in building monuments out of useful, wholesome, helpful, and intelligent lives.
