Will you permit me to refer to the interesting article in a recent issue, reporting in part a session of the doctors' convention in Regina?

When Mrs. Eddy first began appealing to mankind for a closer walk with God, for a more positive acceptance of His omnipotence, omniscience, and omnipresence, the dictionary scarcely contained words sufficiently virulent to level at her. Note, however, the words of the famous naturalist, Agassiz, which she quotes on page 104 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures": "Every great scientific truth goes through three stages. First, people say it conflicts with the Bible. Next, they say it has been discovered before. Lastly, they say they have always believved it." Quite recently at a medical convention in London, England, at which seven hundred British, United States, and Canadian doctors assembled, Dr. Woods Hutchinson said: "We are getting rid of the drug illusion. We are willing to subscribe to the dictum of Oliver Wendell Holmes that if ninety-nine per cent of all drugs were thrown into the sea it would be a good thing for the human race, but rather hard on the fishes." Now at the important medical convention in Regina, from the lips of Dr. Charles Hunter, of Winnipeg, come the words: "The 'peace of mind' induced by Christian Science had helped—possibly healed—many persons from diseases that had defied the practitioner's diagnosis. Christian Science had also brought relief to individuals who were victims of organic disorders, proving that psychotherapy was not solely confined to functional disease."
