Christian Science - BOOK II - Chapter VI - THE SACRED POEMS

When Mrs. Eddy's "sacred revelations" (that is the language of the By-
laws) are read in public, their authorship must be named. The By-laws
twice command this, therefore we mention it twice, to be fair.

But it is also commanded that when a member publicly quotes "from the
poems of our Pastor Emeritus" the authorship shall be named. For these
are sacred, too. There are kindly people who may suspect a hidden
generosity in that By-law; they may think it is there to protect the
Official Reader from the suspicion of having written the poems himself.
Such do not know Mrs. Eddy. She does an inordinate deal of protecting,
but in no distinctly named and specified case in her history has Number
Two been the object of it. Instances have been claimed, but they have
failed of proof, and even of plausibility.

"Members shall also instruct their students" to look out and advertise
the authorship when they read those poems and things. Not on Mrs. Eddy's
account, but "for the good of our Cause."

All in proper time Mrs. Eddy's factory will take hold of thatCommandment, and explain it for good and all. It may be that one memberof the shift will vote that the word "all" means all; it may be that tenmembers of the shift will vote that "all" means only a percentage; but itis Mrs. Eddy, not the eleven, who will do the deciding. And if she saysit is percentage, then percentage it is, forevermore--and that is what Iam expecting, for she doesn't sell all herself, nor any considerable partof it, and as regards the poor, she doesn't declare any
