Christian Science Sentinel,
[Reprinted from the Christian Science Sentinel, December 21, 1935]
In the historical files of The Mother Church are a few letters written by or for Mrs. Eddy which indicate her desire that Readers in Christian Science churches should present Christian Science from the platform in a scholarly manner, that the reading should be clear and distinct, intelligent, and scientific in interpretation. In one instance she said regarding the reading of one of her addresses: "Do not have him read my address. He puts so much of himself in his reading it clouds the subject. I can trust you to give me a good reader, one that feels his subject and expresses it so that his hearers can understand." In 1903 she said regarding her letter to The Mother Church: "It is multum in parvo so I take the liberty to say it is at the mercy of the reader. The style of reading it needs to be conversational." A few years later, in a letter to an official of The Mother Church, she wrote, "I ask you to select the best reader you can find to read my short Message; one whose voice is ample, articulation distinct, and whose emphasis, pause, tone, is according to conversation,—to the laws of understanding his subject and making it clear to the hearer."
