In your syndicated column, an incorrect statement recently was made, which I am sure you will be glad to have corrected, as it leaves a false impression with your readers.

Before her own healing through prayer, Mrs. Eddy spent some time under the care of the magnetic doctor, P. P. Quimby, of Portland, Maine, but the relief she experienced did not prove permanent.
