During the past two weeks our Leader, Mrs. Eddy, has received more than the usual number of letters expressing the love and gratitude of those who have become beneficiaries of her labors in Christian Science, and we are pleased to devote more than the usual amount of space in this issue to the publication of a very small portion of these most interesting letters. The writers of these letters are cognizant of Mrs. Eddy's labors. They are living monuments to the efficacy of her work in Christian Science, and they know whereof they speak when they say that they are deeply indebted to her for the knowledge of God and His Christ which has healed them.

We happen to be personally acquainted with several of those whose letters appear this week, and we know that their experience differs only in detail from that of tens of thousands of others. These persons have been redeemed by Christian Science in the truest sense of the word. From hopeless, helpless, despairing, and dying invalids they have been transformed into healthy, hopeful, useful ministers of God, and they are now healing and comforting others as they themselves were healed and comforted. Not one of them, however, was able to do this humanitarian work before mastering in some degree the teachings of Science and Health. Truthfully has the editor of the Portland (Ore.) Journal written in regard to Mrs. Eddy, "It is not straying beyond the bounds of verity to say that her ideas have brought sunshine and sweetness into the lives of this generation."
