Your readers will be interested to know that the office of Christian Science Committee on Publication was instituted for their benefit. Part of the duties of this office is to acquaint the public, through the valuable medium of the press, with the facts concerning Christian Science, when injustices and impositions are made upon the public, either ignorantly or otherwise.

Now your last issue contained an anonymous letter which needs the attention of this committee. It is felt that you will appreciate your duty to your readers by inserting this letter, which is intended to help not only them, but also your correspondent.

The question as to whether Christian Science must come through the Christian churches is fully answered by its Discoverer and Founder, Mary Baker Eddy, in her book "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," beginning on page 131. There was a time when this denomination was much maligned, so that these words from the twenty-eighth chapter of the Acts of the Apostles, which referred to Christianity as Christ Jesus taught it, might have been applied to it—"for as concerning this sect, we know that every where it is spoken against." Nowadays, owing to the fact that Christian Science is producing in ever increasing measure those signs which our Master said "shall follow them that believe"—by casting out evil and healing the sick—it is recognized as a religion with a mission to perform. In 1928, the Rev. T. Rhondda Williams, then chairman-elect of the Congregational Union of England and Wales, stated in a sermon that he "often defended Christian Science because there seemed such a vast amount of truth in it." Again, this statement from the book "Questions on Faith and Conduct. Answers to Modern Religious Problems," by John Bevan, is interesting: "In holding the doctrine of the cure of disease by faith, the Christian Scientists are rescuing a vital truth which the church has largely lost."
