FROM THE Directors

"I never wrote this..."

Our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, once penned on the first page of a manuscript she had just reviewed, "I never wrote this in a letter or letters ..." and on the last page, "Counterfeit MSS." The trickle of spurious material that sorely troubled Mrs. Eddy in her day has turned into a virtual river today.

Circulating widely in various typewritten and printed forms, the fraudulent items tend to present the human mind rather than the divine Mind as the source of healing power.

Titles of pieces falsely bearing Mrs. Eddy's name currently include "A Treatment for Everyday," "Electricity," "God's Spiritual Household," "Mind and Body," "My Income," "Nuggets," "Place," "The Secret," and "Supply." Also, a book, Divinity Course and General Collectanea, contains spurious material.
