Mr. C. A. Frye, Mrs. Eddy’s secretary, told Miss Rob­ertson that Mrs. Eddy called him from bed one cold winter night to dictate the motto on the Christian Science spoon. He said that she seemed very happy when she spoke the words. But she never mentioned it again until someone, nearly a year later, was speaking with her about the proposed spoon. Then she turned to Mr. Frye, and reminded him of the words she had dictated to him. He found them, and brought them to her. She said, “When God told me that, I didn’t know what it was for. Now I know.” The motto is, “Not matter but Mind satisfieth.”  (Carpenter, Gilbert, Collectanea of Items By and About Mary Baker Eddy, p.147)
