Lockport (N. Y.) Journal

The Journal believes that a great injustice has been done to Mrs. Mary Baker Eddy, the Founder of Christian Science, in an article in a recent magazine, and in deference to our sense of fair play we will publish Mrs. Eddy's reply in full in Tuesday's issue.

The Journal does not believe in Christian Science, but it does believe in giving Mrs. Eddy credit for having founded a cult or sect, the members of which are numbered by the thousands, who find great consolation and peace of mind in her teachings.

The Christian Scientists, at least those we have met, are cultured, talented, enterprising, and law-abiding citizens, and if in its teachings they can find that help and consolation which drives away despair and depression and makes darkness into light, as is evidently the case by their devotion to the Cause, then the Journal asks for them the same religious liberty of thought and freedom as is accorded other denominations.
