Ella Peck Sweet was asked by Mrs. Eddy in class in 1887 to define animal magnetism. She declared, ‘Animal magnetism is the sum total of all error, and that in itself nothing until you attach belief to it.’ The teacher clapped her hands, saying, ‘Well answered!’ Seventeen years later Mrs. Eddy asked her to repeat this definition, and when the same words were spoken, she again clapped her hands in approval.  (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.258)
