In recent issues of your paper appeared summaries of addresses given by a clergyman on the "Life of Mary Baker Eddy" and "Truth and Error of Christian Science."

The clergyman said, "There is much in her system which she got from Dr. Quimby." For him so to assert, makes apparent that he probably knows as little of what Dr. Quimby taught as he knows about what Mrs. Eddy taught. It is surprising that he should present that story; for there is no more relation or connection between the teaching of Dr. Quimby and that of Christian Science than there is between his teachings and that of Methodism. The Quimby falsity has been refuted and disproved all through the years, and it is a pity that the clergyman should fall a victim to it and be made to state it from a public platform.

The clergyman observed, "The future of Christian Science will depend on whether the Christian Science church will be able to eliminate the crude and really unscientific elements from the movement." If such elements had actually existed in the Christian Science movement it would have fallen to pieces long ago. On the other hand, it has been false concepts of Christian Science that have come to naught.
