In keeping with this week's commentary on Mary Baker Eddy's work as a publisher, we've selected excerpts from several 1910–11 editions of the Sentinel following Mrs. Eddy's passing in December 1910. These comments represent a tiny portion of tributes from newspapers far and wide recognizing her beneficial influence on the individual and on society in general. All were reprinted in the Sentinel under the heading "Excerpts from Editorial Comments."

Whatever one's view on religion may be, few will care to deny that Mrs. Eddy's influence has been directed toward the betterment of those that she intimately touched. It must have been singularly gratifying in the closing days of her life to realize how widely her belief has been adopted.
