Self-government as Illustrated by Christian Science

The New York Evening Journal

Editor Evening Journal.

Dear Sir:—Your sense of fairness has prompted you to place "The Side of the Christian Scientists" before the public, and for this manly impartiality every reader must feel indebted to you. As a Christian Scientist, and as a personal friend of Mrs. Eddy, I desire to be one of the first to thank you for the motive underlying your statement, and for the short, but far-seeing tribute to Mrs. Eddy's work. I do this while assuring you, unreservedly, that in your explanation of "the success of Christian Science" the main cause is omitted. This cause I find mentioned in the line before the last of your article, and it is summed up in the word "God," interpreted not as a being with the human attribute of variableness, but as infinite, unchanging Mind or Spirit. In revising your statement, therefore, I should take the word God from the last lines, and move it forward to the first.
