In drawing Mrs. Eddy's portrait it has been my purpose to restrict myselfto materials furnished by herself, and I believe I have done that. If Ihave misinterpreted any of her acts, it was not done intentionally.It will be noticed that in skeletonizing a list of the qualities whichhave carried her to the dizzy summit which she occupies, I have notmentioned the power which was the commanding force employed in achievingthat lofty flight. It did not belong in that list; it was a force thatwas not a detail of her character, but was an outside one. It was thepower
