A communication appeared in your recent issue which is very misleading in its statements regarding Christian Science and its Discoverer and Founder, Mary Baker Eddy. Notwithstanding all that your correspondent may think, say, or write, there is no gainsaying the fact that Mrs. Eddy was healed, and healed instantaneously, of the results of a serious accident from which it was feared she could not recover. Further, there is no question but that Mrs. Eddy's healing was effected entirely by her faith in "the God of the Bible,"—to quote our critic,—the God spoken of in Psalms, who "sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions," as witness her own statement in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 108): "When apparently near the confines of mortal existence, standing already within the shadow of the death-valley, I learned these truths in divine Science: that all real being is in God, the divine Mind, and that Life, and Love are all-powerful and ever-present."

The Church of Christ, Scientist, which is such an impelling factor in the teaching of Christianity to-day, had its inception in this particular healing. Mrs. Eddy tells us (Science and Health, p. 109) that for three years she "sought the solution of this problem of Mind-healing, searched the Scriptures, ... and devoted time and energies to discovering a positive rule."
