Colonel Sabin, in the Washington News Letter has this to say about lawyers:—

Lawyers, friends that I have known for years, have met the new ideas with more consideration than those of any other profession. The lawyer naturally, from the practice of his profession, is imbued with the principles of justice, and he also becomes judicially inclined in his mind. He does not jump at rash conclusions without proper evidence and investigation, hence, if this new doctrine were presented to the lawyers of the United States they would, very many of them, embrace its truth, because they would investigate, and they would not allow their opinions to be made for them by anybody, but would be governed by facts. Such an investigation is all Christian Science requires to establish its truthfulness. Yet all the lawyers are not freed from superstition and prejudices. There is one I know who had an affection of the eyes; one eye was nearly blind, the other was rapidly becoming so. I wrote to him, sent him the name of a Scientist living in his town, asking him to try the Science. Prejudice and Materia medica had too strong a hold upon him. He stuck to his prejudice, and to-day is blind.

I know of another lawyer who lost his voice, and physicians, specialists in New York, Boston, Paris, London, and Dresden failed to give him any relief. He was finally advised to try the warm temperature and dry climate of Arizona for a year, which he did. He came back to Chicago no better. Through a fortunate circumstance he was thrown in contact with some one who had heard of Christian Science; he applied to a Scientist, was healed, and to-day his voice is perfectly well. This gentleman is a man of national reputation and to-day one of the leading men in Chicago.
