A writer, in your recent issue, makes a kindly reference to Christian Scientists when speaking of objections to the use of vaccines and serums. The eminent doctor manifests a desire to be fair; and therefore I shall appreciate space to correct any wrong impression that may be drawn from his statement.

Christian Scientists have no desire to interfere with the use of serums and vaccines by those who believe in them and want them. They are strenuously opposed, however, to the compulsory use of treatments not desired, and wish to maintain their lawful right to use a remedy known to be perfectly harmless and efficient. They have ample reasons for agreeing with Mrs. Eddy's statement, as found in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 4), namely, that "thought imbued with purity, Truth, and Love, instructed in the Science of metaphysical healing, is the most potent and desirable remedial agent on the earth."
