Not Well Informed.

Certain gentlemen of the pulpit in Michigan and elsewhere, are varying their stereotyped attacks upon Christian Science by attempting to make capital out of the falsehoods which have recently been revived, to the effect that the author of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," borrowed her system of healing from one Dr. P. P. Quimby. One of these gentlemen is reported to have said in a recent sermon, with reference to these charges, that the Rev. Mary Baker Eddy has kept a judicious silence, although the seriousness of the offence and the boldness of the accusation have demanded a reply, which she had never even attempted.

In view of the facts, this assertion, made publicly in a pulpit where truth only is supposed to be uttered, is about as bold a performance as anything of which we can conceive. The gentlemen who thus speak should be aware that they are thereby acknowledging themselves to be uninformed of existing and well-known facts, and they should become better historians before undertaking to recite history.
