Brooklyn (N. Y.) Eagle

I could read in the Eagle with perfect understandings Doctor—'s statement relating to the origin of disease, and I could realize also the absurdity (to him) of the quotations cited from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, because the best part of my life has been spent in the study of material science, especially of physiology and hygiene. I know the doctor's viewpoint, and also the irritating, almost maddening effect of the affirmations of Christian Scientists on a person holding his convictions.

Knowing all this, and having had the experience that I have had, I make this request of the doctor: Will he not, if possible, lay aside his objections, cease arguing over the letter of the text-book, and put Christian Science to a practical test. If it is a science, it must be demonstrable. If demonstrable, what then? If the critic is a true and fair scientist, he will be willing to judge Christian Science by what it can accomplish. It takes much courage and honesty to do this in the face of one's own opposition, but it is the only right way of procedure.
