The Mary Baker Eddy Library for the Betterment of HumanityTM

In her true light...

A look at the unpublished writings of Mary Baker Eddy

On September 29, The Mary Baker Eddy Library for the Betterment of Humanity will open its doors. For the rest of this year, the Sentinel will bring readers selections from the Library's collection of materials.

This short piece was dictated by Mary Baker Eddy in about October 1909, according to notes on the manuscript by Adam H. Dickey, who served as one of her secretaries from 1908 to 1910. His notes also indicate that it was written in connection with the Augusta Stetson controversy. (Mrs. Stetson was a Christon Science practitioner and teacher in New York City who was also a student of Mrs. Eddy's. Her persistent attacks on anyone she viewed as a rival led to her excommunication in 1909.)
