A fair inference from the editorial in your issue of June 21 is that you regard Christian Science as a system of mental absurdities wherein one has but to "ignore facts, and they cease to exist." Kindly permit me to correct this misconception through your columns.

Christian Science points to the spiritual law set forth in Matthew 6:19-34, the essence of which is, "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you," as all-sufficient to solve humanity's economic difficulties, and the only real, or ultimate, solution therefor.

Those who believe that a demonstrable understanding of this law, or rule, may be gained by mere intellectual assent thereto, or by the repetition of certain formulae, have but to attempt to gain such understanding to learn that only through strict obedience to the unerring, scientific basis of Christianity may it be won. Christian Scientists understand full well that it is only in the degree that they come into harmony with and obedience to the law of Mind, God, that they reach a solution of their problems. They also understand that this spiritual law which solves the problems of the individual will also solve those of the nations. Christ Jesus conclusively demonstrated the power of God's law; and he is the Exemplar of Christian Science.
