Peoria Journal

In that portion of your personal health service columns devoted to printed questions and answers, in your recent issue, the query of a correspondent referred to a mother of advancing years as having "Christian Science notions," because she refused to consent to an operation for cataract. Your columnist, in his reply, held out a promise of healing by means of surgical operation, and said, "There is no other recourse." While I am not familiar with this particular case, I surmise that the afflicted mother is well aware that Christian Science has healed many such disorders. To cheer those among your readers who may have gained a false impression from the rather discouraging opinion just quoted, permit me to state that it is not an uncommon occurrence for persons to seek and find permanent healing through the practice of Christian Science after drugs and operative surgery have failed either to relieve or cure.
