From the Papers: Letterpress correspondence

Recently we’ve been publishing a lot of letterpress copies of letters written by Mary Baker Eddy. These are letters that her secretary preserved by pressing the ink of the original letter against a moist sheet of special paper. Many times they constitute the only surviving copies. It is interesting to note which letters Eddy wanted to keep copies of—often pointed, instructional, or standing as important historical records.
