From the August 1883 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Mary Baker Eddy has been verified as the author of this unsigned article by The Mary Baker Eddy Library.

This article was later republished in Miscellaneous Writings 1883-1896: Mis 228:20-229:28

Whatever man sees, feels, or takes cognizance of, must be caught through mind, insomuch as perception, sensation and consciousness belong to mind and not to mattter. Floating with the popular current of mortal thought, without questioning the reliability of its conclusions, we do what others do, believe what others believe, and say what others say.
