Did Mary Baker Eddy write it? The authorship of “Place”

Statements attributed to Mary Baker Eddy, but not included in her published writings, have circulated for many years. Our Research & Reference Services is often asked to authenticate an article titled “Place,” sometimes said to have been Eddy’s work. It starts with this line: “The place you seek is seeking you.” Claims are often made that “Place” influenced Adam H. Dickey in writing his article “God’s Law of Adjustment.” We have found no evidence that Eddy wrote “Place,” or that it inspired Dickey in his work. We do not know who wrote the article.
