[Annie M. Knott in Woman's Era, New Orleans, La.]

MRS. EDDY—THE WOMAN

From the March 1910 issue of The Christian Science Journal


IT is by no means an easy task to write about the personality of any one who has become known to the world through his or her achievements, for the latter always seem to eclipse the former; and yet it must ever be true that the achievements spring from the personality, that what one does is the result of what he is. Long ago the great Teacher said that a tree is known by its fruit,—not by its stem, its leaves, its branches, or its root; and whatever we may choose to think or say, the test of the Master is inevitably the final test for every human being.
