I would appreciate space to correct a wrong impression given in the article, "Norman Peasant Discovers Method to Improve Crops," which appeared in your recent issue. Christian Science is not connected in any way with hypnotism, spiritualism, electricity, or magic. The healing accomplished in Christian Science is the effect which follows the understanding that God does not produce evil of any kind. Jesus refused to give power to evil. Christian Science honors God by recognizing the fact that "God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good."

The following extract from and address by the Bishop of Kensington, England, may be of interest: "Why do we not heal the sick in Christ's name as did the early church? It is to find an answer to that question that I ventured to suggest this conference to-day. And in my invitation I draw your attention to the challenge which the action of that body of Christians called Christian Scientists makes. It is to me indisputable that they do heal the sick both in mind and body. That notable miracles have been wrought by them we cannot deny. It is idle to dismiss the evidence in an offhand spirit of incredulity, still less to be 'offended' because the work of healing is being done in Christ's name by those who follow not with us."
