Quincy (Mass.) Ledger
When Benjamin Franklin discovered that electricity could be led by a cord, he established in the minds of men the recognition of a fact which had always existed. He brought nothing new into the world except a limited and imperfect understanding of a force which was not then being utilized. If he had not tested his belief by an actual demonstration with kite and key, it would have remained for others to prove the possibility of using a force having no material form.
When Mrs. Eddy discovered the Principle of Christian Science, she established no new facts or laws, But she did gain an understanding of an unused power far greater than electricity, and she has communicated this understanding to those who followed her researches and were willing to prove their understanding by demonstrating through actual tests the availability of the Almighty for all good. Mrs. Eddy has made a study of Christian Science for over forty years, and at least discusses the matter seriously and without venom, sarcasm, or hatred.
The writer is not a member of the Christian Science denomination, but has read the work referred to and failed to find any evil in Mrs. Eddy's teachings.
