Extracts from Reports of Christian Science Committees on Publication for the Year Ended September 30, 1929

The Paris edition of the Chicago Tribune had an article headed, "Charges of Plagiarism in Eddy Works." The answer, including the essential part of Mr. Willis J. Abbot's interview with Senator Moses of New Hampshire, as given in The Christian Science Monitor, appeared the next morning under the heading: "Mrs. Eddy was always able to express herself in own words, Senator Moses replies to charge she plagiarized Victorians." An interesting point about this was that when I took the answer in to the Chicago Tribune I met an editor who knew Senator Moses personally, and who assured me the answer would appear the following morning; and it did.

In Michelis di Rienzi's book "Les Petites Eglises," the author speaks of Mrs. Eddy as one of the most extraordinary women of our times. He says that she knew "God face to face" and was able "to touch and handle things unseen;" also, that the promise of health given in her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," is the result of the understanding of spiritual law. We are grateful for these signs of the times. Towards the end of his chapter on Christian Science the author describes a service held at the Salle de Geographie.
