Your issue of Tuesday contains some extracts from an editorial comment in the South African Medical Journalon the case of Saks v. Rex, heard recently in the Transvaal Supreme Court. The writer of the editorial calls Christian Science an "imposition," and characterizes Christian Scientists as "well-intentioned," but "faddists."

May I say that those who have really understood and fairly tested Christian Science acknowledge that it has brought to them a fuller revelation of the nature of Christianity and of its practical applicability to human problems, its practice being based upon the superiority of the power of spiritual truth over material beliefs.

Today there is scarcely a village where witnesses to its healing power cannot be found; and statements by many highly reputable medical men are also on record confirming its efficacy. The truth of Christian Science is demonstrable.

To assert, then, that Christian Science is an imposition is scarcely in good taste. And to deny, even by implication, that Christian Science heals, is plainly to shut one's eyes to fact.
