Part of a writer's remarks in your issue of January 12 appears to say or imply that religion and faith will not cure you "if there is anything really the matter with you." He adds, "It [faith cure] won't cure a broken leg, an aching tooth, or a cancer, more's the pity."

Readers may fairly conclude from these remarks that the popular writer's religion and faith are not sufficient for these things, but I submit that many people are more enlightened in this respect; therefore his conclusion will not apply to them. Many times have such conditions as he names been healed by an understanding of the Christian religion as taught by Mary Baker Eddy in her textbook on Christian Science, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures."

A very significant circumstance connected with such healing is the fact that the treatment employed was not different from that used in Christian Science for ills commonly considered imaginary. This fact bears out the scientific conclusion reached by Mrs. Eddy, deduced from Scriptural premises and found true in practice, that no discordant conditions of any kind are real. If they were they could not be corrected by any method whatsoever.
