In Re Christian Science

As a student and a lawyer, I cannot blot from memory either history or precedent. It is never safe either to criticise or sneer at anything about which one knows absolutely nothing.

As I am not a Christian Scientist nor even a Christian, I am not prejudiced either for or against this new and to me rather strange theory of life and health. But the age is one of progress and development. The thoughts and theories of to-day may become the rubbish of tomorrow. You cannot build a Chinese wall around the human intellect. Hence for me this new departure has no terrors. If good, the people will in time accept it; if found otherwise, they will in time reject it, and in this, as in all else affecting the welfare of the race, it is safe to trust the good sense of the people.
