In a recent number of your paper an article begins with some general remarks on religious "stragglers" in America. It seems to be the belief of your correspondent that Christian Science is such a straggler. As he, however, points out that Christian Science has a rather great influence in America, it will undoubtedly interest many of the readers of your paper to learn whether such a belief can be said to be justified.

In the Bible we read: "Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples, and said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another?" We all know that Jesus answered by referring to the fruits of his work. He said, "Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see: the blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them." Thousands of unhappy, despairing, sick, and suffering people, who in our own time have turned to Christian Science, having, perhaps, the same doubt which was expressed by John's question, have experienced that this teaching brings forth the same fruits which followed the preaching and practice of Christianity in Jesus' time. Their doubt has been removed; they have found a firm foundation for their faith; peace and assurance fill their thoughts, and they have become healthier and happier people. They have seen that Christian Science is one with Christianity, of which they have gained a clearer and higher understanding.
