Wanganui Herald

In order that your readers may be rightly informed on the subject, will you grant me space for some corrections of statements appearing in an article in a recent issue of the Herald? It is probable that the book under review is merely an item in the widespread propaganda which seeks to discredit all systems of healing other than that of one particular school of medicine, but this does not excuse its inaccuracies. It should be remembered that few people turn to Christian Science for help until they have failed to find healing from the so-called orthodox treatment.

Relative to specific charges made in the article, it is true that Mrs. Eddy was attended only by Christian Scientists when she passed on at the age of eighty-nine years. In compliance with the law of the state, however, a medical man was called in later merely to certify as to the cause of death, and he described his visit as a "perfunctory duty."
