Please permit me to make the following statement in reply to the remarks of an evangelist quoted in your issue of December 24, wherein he referred disrespectfully to Mrs. Eddy. Aside from the fact that it is most unusual for any gentleman to make such a remark about a woman, it is surprising that a minister of the gospel should do so. Not only is this true because of the sacred calling of his profession, but also because of the following unqualified declaration of Christ Jesus: "But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire."

The following and many other similar statements attest to the character, purity, and intelligence of Mrs. Eddy:
