Letters in the Boston Traveler

Christian Science.

To the Editor:—I was much interested in certain statements by Judge Hanna in connection with the proposed prosecution of certain Christian Science healers (so-called). I have just returned from England after several months' absence, and can say that his statement, that Mr. Harold Frederic (whose death called such marked attention to the subject) was for a considerable time under the unsuccessful care of regular physicians previous to the employment of the Christian Science practitioners, is the general understanding of the case in England. There was at the time a vigorous attempt made by the health authorities and medical practitioners to incite popular indignation, but, in spite of the fact that the parties involved were very humble and obscure persons, the case dropped of its own weight.
