Worthy of His Hire

The News and Courier

To the Editor of The News and Courier:— Your issue of the 7th inst, gives publicity to certain editorial comments of the New york Evening Sun in reference to Christian Science. I hope you will allow me a little of your valuable space for a word in reply to the same.

Referring to the statement of the Rev. Mary Baker Eddy, Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, "I have always believed that Christian Scientists should be law-abiding," the Sun exclaims: "What a concession on the part of Mrs. Eddy!" What concession can the able writer possibly have reference to? I admit that I am somewhat puzzled. Mrs. Eddy simply states what she has "always believed," and surely there is nothing in the history of Christian Science to indicate that its followers have ever been anything but peaceful, law-abiding, Christian people. They believe in doing right under all circumstances, and that it is, most assuredly, right to obey the laws of our land. I fail to see where any "concession," whatever has been made by Mrs. Eddy.
