Christian Science as a cure for the drink habit was recognized...
San Francisco (Cal.) Bulletin
Christian Science as a cure for the drink habit was recognized by Judge Graham today [Dec. 28] when he restored Robert P. Campbell to competency and gave him a $6,200 inheritance, on the strength of a showing that the former San Francisco hotel man has abstained since last May, as the result of Christian Science treatment by friends at Eureka.
For ten years Campbell had made repeated attempts to convince the San Francisco courts that he was not incompetent and was entitled to the money left in trust by his father, to be given him when he attained the age of forty, on condition that he abstain from liquor. Three years ago Campbell took the stand to testify to his sobriety, and before he had left it admitted that he was drunk at the time. Campbell's latest application was supported by the affidavit of a hotel owner at Eureka, who had befriended Campbell and given him employment as a clerk. Himself a Scientists, he told of inducing Campbell to take treatment, with the result that he was completely cured and had not taken a drink for eight months. Judge Graham reserved his decision, pending an investigation of the "cure." Today he rendered judgment declaring Campbell a competent and ordering the Union Trust Company to pay him the $6,200.
