"Horses mistaught"

[For children]

Dear David,

Do you ever read the marginal headings in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy? If so, have you found one which reads, "Horses mistaught"? It's on page 179. What does it mean to you?

You said in your last letter to me that the weather had been very cold and that you had forgotten to put on your coat when you went outdoors. And you suggested that this was probably the reason why you are now in bed with a bad cold. Will you now look at a paragraph on the page to see what Mrs. Eddy says about horses and colds? "You can even educate a healthy horse so far in physiology that he will take cold without his blanket, whereas the wild animal, left to his instincts, sniffs the wind with delight," she says.
