Reply to a Clergyman's Article

The Courier

Editor of The Courier:—The article by the Rev. George Whitman, in your paper of May 28th last, intended as an answer to the public lecture on Christian Science by Judge William G. Ewing, is interesting, but ineffectual. Mr. Whitman not only does not answer Judge Ewing, but he makes admissions in the opening paragraphs of his carefully prepared article, which render futile any criticism, by him, of Christian Science.

When Mr. Whitman speaks of "disintegration" and "disaffection" among the churches, as accounting for the growth of Christian Science, he discloses, no doubt, one of the contributing causes; but he raises a point which I refrain from pressing home, for the query naturally follows, "Why is there disaffection in the old churches?"
