Cambridge Review

A few words taken apart from the context may give a very unfair impression. In your review of "American Foreign Policies" recently, some words of Mrs. Eddy are quoted somewhat contemptuously as her "creed": "I believe strictly in the Monroe doctrine, in our Constitution, and in the laws of God." It is not mentioned that the sentence occurs in her reply to the Boston Globe, which had asked her for a sentiment on the ending of war between Russia and Japan, on the influence President Roosevelt had exerted for peace, or on the advancement of the cause of arbitration. In her reply, from which the words are taken, she expresses admiration for the President's universal good will, but indicates her belief that peace and prosperity for the nations can be attained only through dependence on God, through improvement in their governments, and a growing recognition of the Golden Rule. (See The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 282.)
