A Plea for Fair Judgment

Boston Herald

Mr. Editor.

In a recent editorial you declared, "The medical science of the present day is the result of a building up, through generations, of the slowly acquired knowledge of the physical system of man." Then you declare, "The regular physician does not protend to be infallible; he does the best that his judgment will permit." All this we readily admit, and graciously accord to the noble army of honest physicians all the credit that is due them.

Do you expect Christian Scientists to obtain a full and perfect knowledge of the unseen spiritual power in thirty-five years while, according to your admission, the medical schools in their four thousand years' study of the visible material have acquired "but a fraction of what may later on be discovered concerning human ailments and their method of treatment and cure"?
