In your issue of July 10 appears a report of an address by a doctor, delivered before the American Neurological Association in Atlantic City, which gives a wrong impression of Christian Science. I would appreciate the privilege of space in your publication for a brief correction.

Our friend, the doctor, refers to Christian Science as a "cult." According to Webster the word "cult" means "generally, the worship of a deity according to its specific rites; as, the cult of Apollo."

According to the same authority the word "religion" means "conformity in faith and life to the precepts inculcated in the Bible, respecting conduct of life and duty toward God and man; the Christian faith and practice."
