The Mary Baker Eddy Library for the Betterment of Humanity

In her true light ...

A look at the newly published writings of Mary Baker Eddy

Mary Baker Eddy's letter to a German Christian Scientist, Countess Fanny von Moltke, was written just a month after the "Next Friends" suit was filed in Concord, New Hampshire. The Countess wrote to reassure her that unjust attacks on her could not prevail, and the lawsuit proved an unsuccessful attempt to deprive Mrs. Eddy of her freedom and financial assets. Mrs. Eddy's reply, however, is not about personal trials, but world peace. The "recent stir" she mentions may be a reference to the public meeting held in the Extension of The Mother Church just two weeks before, which supported a Peace Congress and the International Peace Conference, held at The Hague in June 1907.
