Explanation of Format

In the original books, each lesson was typed in an outlined box, two boxes on each page.  These were referred to as “clip and carry” lessons.  The text was limited to the lines and spaces within each box.  I will be keeping to the lines as they appeared in the boxes, minus the boxes, but added paragraph spacing for easier reading.  The “clip-and-carry” idea was for the purpose of having portable lessons that the children could carry with them to focus upon.  Notes could be made on the back; they could easily be mailed, or tucked into the Books or the Quarterly Bible Lessons.

Due to space limitation in that format, I did not spell out in full the sources, nor the exact line numbers from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. That format will stay for these excerpts.   Here is the source information found in the front of each Volume:

All quotations from the Bible are from the authorized King James’ version.

All other quotations are from the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and
Founder of Christian Science and the author of the Christian Science textbook,
Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.

The following abbreviations may be used in giving sources of quotations from the
