DEDICATION.

         To
         Loyal Christian Scientists
         In This And Every Land
         I Lovingly Dedicate These Practical Teachings
         Indispensable To The Culture And Achievements Which
         Constitute The Success Of A Student
         And Demonstrate The Ethics
         Of Christian Science

         Mary Baker Eddy


         Pray thee, take care, that tak’st my book in hand,
         To read it well; that is, to understand.

         BEN JONSON: Epigram 1

         When I would know thee … my thought looks
         Upon thy well made choice of friends and books;
         Then do I love thee, and behold thy ends
         In making thy friends books, and thy books friends.

         BEN JONSON: Epigram 86


         If worlds were formed by matter,
         And mankind from the dust;
         Till time shall end more timely,
         There’s nothing here to trust.

         Thenceforth to evolution’s
         Geology, we say, —
         Nothing have we gained therefrom,
         And nothing have to pray:

         My world has sprung from Spirit,
         In everlasting day;
         Whereof, I’ve more to glory,
         Wherefor, have much to pay.

         MARY BAKER EDDY
