Will you please permit me space to express appreciation of the worthy and Christian resolution of a clergyman in your issue of recent date, on the church page, under the salutation, "Our Christian Science Friends"?

Certainly "introspection," which brought the decision to substitute "charity, delicacy, and courtesy" for harshness and bitterness, when discussing differences between religious faiths, is "the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man [which] availeth much." We trust that when the teachings of Christian Science are examined in the spirit which characterizes the clergyman's statement, instead of in an attitude of bitterness and hostility, misapprehensions which prompted former denunciations will melt away and Christian amity will prevail. Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, writes in "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" (p. 4): "A genuine Christian Scientist loves Protestant and Catholic, D. D. and M. D.,—loves all who love God, good; and he loves his enemies."

We'd love to hear from you!
