The Mary Baker Eddy Library for the Betterment of Humanity

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A look at the unpublished writings of Mary Baker Eddy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 call for prayer in behalf of peace is typewritten on a small piece of paper. The closing signature, and most punctuation, are in Mrs. Eddy's handwriting. Along the side, lightly penciled in the handwriting of her assistant, Calvin Frye, is the note: "At end of Spanish War in Cuba (?)" If Frye is correct, this request may date from about 1898; however, it is reminiscent of Mrs. Eddy's later commentaries on war and peace (see Chapter XV of her book The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany).
