Letters of Appreciation of The Christian Science Monitor

"I am at a loss for words to express my appreciation of and gratitude for The Christian Science Monitor. At the present time it constitutes a large part of my 'five foot library,' and I consider myself pretty well equipped. I know that the daily reading of this paper during the past four or five years not only has considerably enlarged my vocabulary, but has strengthened my command of English to an extent never before possessed. To my mind it is the model newspaper, and represents the goal of journalistic attainment. It would seem that we are now entering a period of cleansing and purification in journalism, in which movement the Monitor is undoubtedly the leader and standard bearer.

"I have followed with much interest all that you have published in your vigorous stand for prohibition. Of course, The Christian Science Monitor could not consistently take any other stand than it has; but it is certainly refreshing and encouraging to know that there is at least one newspaper in the world that will always stand firmly for the right, and whose policy is guided entirely by Principle. I thoroughly believe, however, that the newspapers of this country, and eventually of the countries of the world which are now either partly or wholly wet, will in time change their attitude and opinions as the great benefits of prohibition become too apparent to be ignored, refuted, or overlooked, intentionally or otherwise. I also believe that this change of opinion will have been brought about to a very large extent by the pioneer efforts of the Monitor."—A. C. S., New York, New York.
