In full: I was most interested to see your Mark Twain postcard dated’Riverdale, New York City, Dec. I think that I can document it for you. The complete date of the card is 5 December 1902. Its addressee was Frederick W. A Boston attorney, Peabody was a vocal critic of Christian Science, the religious movement that Mark Twain was at the time discussing in a series of articles for the North American Review December 1902; January, February, April 1903. Peabody had delivered an address attacking Christian Science at Tremont in Boston on 1 August 1901. On 2 December 1902, having read Mark Twain’s’Christian Science’ in the North American Review for that month, Peabody sent Mark Twain a copy of the pamphlet version of the address, entitled A Complete Exposé of Eddyism or Christian Science and the Plain Truth in Plain Terms Regarding Mary Baker G. Eddy, Founder of Christian Science (Boston, 1901). The present postcard refers to a section of the pamphlet in which Peabody commented on the’rules and by-laws’ of Christian Science Publishing Society, 1899. It and Peabody’s pamphlet were among Mark Twain’s chief reference sources in his continuing examination of Christian Science. I hope that this information will be of use to you. This postcard, which I had never seen before in any form, is a very significant addition to the materials that facilitate an understanding of Mark Twain’s extensive writings on Christian Science. Staple holes at upper left blank corner, pencil notes (unknown hand) at upper right edge. See more material from these signers. See more listings in our AUTHORS (1,700).
