The charge that Mary Baker Eddy plagiarized thirty-three pages from a document by Lieber (Letters to the Editor April 5) has an interesting history, though it is too long to tell here. (One professor used to assign the unraveling of the mystery to his college classes.) Actually, scholars and researchers have long since refuted the claim, and the alleged "document"—itself but twelve pages long—was concluded to have been plagiarized from Mrs. Eddy, not the other way around. For details, see Ordeal by Concordance by Conrad Moehlman, Longmans, Green and Company, 1955; and, Mary Baker Eddy: The Years of Discovery by Robert Peel, Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1966.
