Experience in Dealing with Contagious Diseases

It may be of interest to the workers in the Field to know something of the experiences of others in dealing with so-called contagious diseases. After sixteen years' experience in Christian Science work I can unhesitatingly say that I have never known of a case of contagion follow in a household where the patient was treated in Christian Science; and I have never known within the range of my own experience or observation of but one case attended with fatal results, and in that case there were peculiar and unusual difficulties.

During the last few years I have recommended obedience to the state laws as advised by our Leader, Mrs. Eddy, and in one town there have been a number of severe ailments amongst children who were not Christian Scientists, but none had been reported by the physicians attending them.
