Kindly allow me to comment upon the three letters concerning Christian Science which appeared in the Morpeth Herald of the 5th instant.

First of all, I would point out that apparently your three correspondents have not put Christian Science to the test according to its rules, and their opinions on the subject must, therefore, be of as little value as that of one who looks into a textbook on geometry and, without understanding its propositions, attempts to explain what geometry is. Christian Science is exact Science, the truth or exact knowledge about God and His idea, man; and anyone who honestly and sincerely follows the rules laid down in its textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, can prove by "signs following" that this Science is true. Multitudes have tested Christian Science in this way, and have proved it true; and it is because of its practical proofs that Christian Science is today attracting to its standard hosts of intelligent men and women in the civilized countries of the world.

In the first of these letters a clergyman states that his recent sermon on Christian Science was not delivered "for the purposes of controversy." That is accepted, and there is no desire on my part either for controversy; but since the report of the sermon reached the wide circle of your readers, it is necessary to correct the preacher's statements of his misconceptions of Christian Science contained in the sermon. Hence my letter in your issue of the 29th ultimo.
