In the Telegraph of December 4 is a letter dealing with some items about Christian Science and its Discoverer and Founder, Mary Baker Eddy, which Mrs. Eddy herself dealt with and repudiated in an article, "Falsehood," published in her book "Miscellaneous Writings" (pp. 248, 249).

A daughter of sincerely religious parents, Mrs. Eddy habitually turned to God for comfort and guidance. Until the revelation of the healing power of Truth came to her in 1866, she was a great sufferer, and at times an invalid. Her great love for God and man was the keynote of her life, and it enabled her, despite malicious and ignorant opposition, to give Christian Science to the world. She never condemned the sick, sorrowing, or sinning as having nothing the matter with them. But she did see that the man of God's creating is perfect, and is free from the material bondage of sickness and sin. Mrs. Eddy was deeply humanitarian, and knew that the high ideals and standard of Christian Science would be attained slowly by those who, like one shipwrecked, cling to old beliefs.
