The laudable purpose of a gentleman...

Journal Gazette

The laudable purpose of a gentleman "to obtain a better knowledge of truth ... and, if possible, help the other fellow in the acquisition of a few facts," as mentioned in his letter published in your issue of recent date, takes on a strange tone in the vehement expression of his personal opinion in assailing the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," and its author, Mary Baker Eddy. Really, the vigor of the attack, if not expressing venom, would at least indicate antagonism toward Christian Science rather than an effort to enlighten "the other fellow."

Probably your contributor does not know it, but zealous individuals such as he have, for over fifty years, given expression to the same kind of misrepresentation; but regardless of such attacks, criticisms, and denunciations, that marvelous book, Science and Health, is being more widely studied to-day than ever before, and the Christian Science church is continuing undisturbed in its mission to bless mankind in the overcoming of sin and the healing of sickness.
