In Defence of Christian Science.

The Times

To the Editor of The Times. In your issue of September 26, you criticise Mrs. Eddy's explanation of why prayer failed to save President McKinley. As one who has made a thorough study and investigation of Christian Science, I ask you kindly to allow me to make some corrections and comments.

You say "the Christian Scientists, Dowieites, and all such charlatans." Christian Science and the teachings of Dowie have absolutely nothing in common, as they are polar extremes both in principle and practice, and therefore they should not be classed together. Neither has Christian Science any connection with any of the various faith-healing sects, nor does it involve occultism of any kind. It is simply the application of the teachings of our Master. Christ Jesus, on a scientific, metaphysical, demonstrable basis as discovered by Mrs. Eddy, and is the foundation of a religious denomination which now has over a million believers.
