Mrs. Eddy’s Stand on Authorized Literature   -  CARD.

          Since my attention has been called to the article in the May Journal, I think it would have 

          been wiser not to have organized the GENERAL ASSOCIATION FOR DISPENSING 

          CHRISTIAN SCIENCE LITERATURE

 

                    1. Because I disbelieve in the utility of so wide spread an organization.  It tends to 

                        promote monopolies,

                    2. I consider my students as capable, individually, of selecting their own reading matter 

                        and circulating it, as a committee would be which is chosen for this purpose.

 

          I shall have nothing further to say on this subject, but hope my students’ conclusion will be

          wisely drawn, and tend to promote the welfare of those outside, as well as inside 

          this organization.
