From the editorial in the Register of June 26, an inference might be mistakenly drawn that ninety-five per cent of the cases cured by Christian Science would "get well anyway."

Please let me state that healing in Christian Science is accomplished by the same spiritually mental method as that employed by Christ Jesus, who healed "all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people" and who said, "He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also." Jesus' cures were not limited to special types of disease, and the testimony is overwhelming that Christian Science has cured and is curing diseases diagnosed as incurable by esteemed members of the medical profession—not only functional disorders but also organic diseases.

Christian Scientists appreciate the humanity of conscientious physicians who labor faithfully to improve the physical condition of mankind, but is not the fact worthy of that large numbers of sick and diseased people have been healed in Christian Science only they failed to find relief at the hands of reputable physicians and had exhausted every material means of cure? If these afflicted people would have got well anyway, why did they not receive their healing during the long periods of suffering before having Christian Science treatment?
