The Progress

The growth and prominence of the Christian Science movement and the consequent public importance of its Founder and Leader, Mrs. Mary Baker G. Eddy, has led to several recent sensational newspaper and magazine articles concerning Mrs. Eddy's life and character, even her present personal identity and existence being questioned. The falsity of these abusive articles has been made evident, and the fair-minded press of the country has been quick to protest against the unfairness of the attacks.

The dissection of Mrs. Eddy's personal character has but remote bearing upon the fundamentals of Christian Science, a belief which now numbers its adherents by the million or more. . . . Reliable, information as to the movement or to its Leader would undoubtedly have wide public interest, but it is to be hoped that such subjects will in the future be avoided by the sensation mongers. The merits or demerits of Christian Science need not enter into the question.
