A while ago there appeared in your paper several articles by a clergyman attacking Mary Baker Eddy, Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, and purporting to "expose" this religion as a dangerous doctrine. In justice to the many readers of your paper, I ask the privilege of space in which to make a brief correction.

It is evident that the writer of these articles has been misinformed. In fact, he seems to have secured about all his material from books, in no way authoritative or correct, whose authors have possessed none of the qualifications necessary to evaluate the life and work of such a great woman as Mary Baker Eddy.

The statement that Mrs. Eddy "knew very little about writing correctly" does not stand in face of the facts that she was made an honorary member of the Victoria Institute in London. It may be added that, in recognition of its merit, the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," was accorded a full chapter in "The Cambridge History of American Literature."
