thur Brisbane, who, at the request of
the Cosmopolitan Magazine, interview
ed the aged leader of Christian Scie;t
ti.sts, at her home in Concord, N. II.
Mr. Bristxine.passed an hour at. th
heme of Mrs. Eddy. Mr. Brisban's Im
mediate report to the. publication hi
represented upon the results of hi
visit to the home of Mrs. Eddy was a
"I visited Mrs. Eddy as the repre
sentative of the Cosmopolitan Maga
zine, in accordance with the arrange
ment that you had made. I had a Ion:;
and extremely interesting- talk with
her. I am glad to tell you that I shall
be able to write the article which you ask
for, and that it will be positively reas
suring and comforting to Mrs. Eddy a
great army of friends.
Mr. Brisbane describes the condi
tions of Mrs. Eddy's home as follows-
"Those about her are devoted to her.
She is in absolute control of her own
movements, and mistress of her entire
household. That is evident.
"Mrs. Eddy is thoroughly competent
to ake care of herself and her bu
ness. The suggestion that she should
be deprived of her personal liberty, or
of the property that she has earned, is
preposterous and shameful.
Her Mental lr I numint.
"For "a woman of her age she i.-
86 jears old her mental vigor ani
clearness of thought are most unusual.
I had every opportunity of convincing
myself thoroughly as to her mental and
physical condition. She talks- clearly,
logically. She reads beautifully with a
voice very musical and of great power.
She understands business- matters thor
oughly. She speaks with intense fee
ing and gratitude of her friends, and
their devotions. To accuse those
friends of conspiracy against her wel
fare is in my opinion disgraceful.
"I shall say at length that I feel most
neepiy. namely, mat it .Mrs. yddy ;n
her old age should be deprived by law
of her fortune, of the right to dispos
of it, or of the right to dispose of her
self, the act would be outrageous. And
it would cause just apprehension in the
mind- of a.ny woman past, three scoe
and ten and possessed of property tha
might arouse the cupidity or the inter
est of outsiders.
Liven Vniler Idea! Condition. '
"Mrs. Eddy lives under ideal condi
tions of comfort, happiness and con
tentment. It would be sheer brutality
on the part of so-called 'next friends
or any others to interfere with her life
as it is today.
"Mrs. Eddy is well able to take care
of herself. She understands the com
plicated details of her lawsuit, and i
her very large religious following fa
better than the average woman of 25
T questioned her in detail as to the
awsuit which seeks to deprive her of
her property, and as to the deed of
trust which she recently executed.
These matters are clear in her mind.
"The charges against Mrs. Eddy are
false in my opinion. But if all th-
charges made against her mental con
dition were true, that very truth would
constitute an additional reason fur
leaving her as she is, in an ideally
beautiful home, surrounded by goou
women devoted to her, to whom her
wishes aire law, in whom she has abso
lute confidence, and whose devotion
makes her life happy.
Suit M lipid or Vli'loim.
"The effort to deprive Mrs. Eddy in
her old age of her freedom of action,
control of the property which she ha
accumulated, is stupid or vicious, and I
bav this as one having no interest
whatever in Christian Scienee.-
"To interfere with Mrs. Eddy's life
to take away from her her complete
liberty of action, would bu a shameful
outrage, and I am convinced that no
court will encourage the effort. I shall
write you more fully before preparin
the article that I have promised."
