The further attack on Christian Science reported in your recent issue again illustrates the improprieties which are likely to be committed by a sectarian when he turns aside from preaching his own religion and engages in throwing bricks at other religions and other religionists.

For instance, the minister allowed himself to assert that Christian Science was not founded by Mary Baker Eddy, but was founded by "Dr." P. P. Quimby, whom he describes as a "faith healer." As a matter of establishing historical fact, Phineas P. Quimby of Portland, Maine, was not a faith healer, and was not the author of what Mrs. Eddy afterward discovered and founded as Christian Science. He practiced personal magnetism or mesmerism. He was not a member of any church, and did not teach faith in God. On the contrary, he often argued against religion.
