From the Directors

From time to time information comes to us which shows the need of greater discretion by members of The Mother Church, when solicited by strangers for financial and other aid. This is especially necessary in cases where the supplicant bases his appeal on the ground of a personal interest in Christian Science and refers to members of the Board of Lectureship or other prominent workers in our movement as being acquainted with him and sponsoring him. Insistent appeals of this kind, as well as questionable projects to promote stocks of doubtful value, and also solicitations by mail, or otherwise, to invest money in enterprises which are not known to be sound, should invariably have careful investigation and thorough scrutiny if one is inclined to respond to their appeal.

If the officers of branch churches, or other members, whenever they learn of such exploitations were to give prompt publicity to the impostures, a genuine service would be rendered to our movement, as well as to the general public.
