A Remarkable Case

In The Christian Science Journal for September, 1901, under the head of "Testimonies from the Field," we published, as the first testimony, the case of Mrs. Jay Scott of Fresno, Cal., written by herself. We published this extraordinary case in our usual unsensational and almost prosaic way. So much have remarkable and even startling cases become commonplace to us and our readers who are Christian Scientists, that it would not occur to us to give them a sensational character, even if we were so disposed.

We received a number of letters and inquiries about Mrs. Scott's case which led us to write her for further particulars concerning it, and to our letter she made a prompt and frank reply.

We have concluded, in view of the unusual nature of Mrs. Scott's case, to republish in the Sentinel her testimony as published in the Journal, and to publish in connection therewith her letter in reply to ours.
