The writer of "It Seems to Me," in your issue of June 17, was correct when he indicated that there must be more to Christian Science than many realize, and this kindly reference is appreciated. However, because of his mention of M. Coué's system at the same time, may I explain to your readers that there is no relation between the Coué method and the religion founded by Mary Baker Eddy?

In an interview with a representative of the Edinburgh Scotsman Mr. Coué admitted that fundamentally his method is hypnotic. Christ Jesus never used hypnotism. He utilized spiritually mental means to heal sin, sickness, lack of supply, and other discordant conditions. In other words, he applied the truth to destroy evil; and he counseled his followers to do likewise when he said, "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

Christian Science follows Christ Jesus' teachings; therefore hypnotism has no place in this religion. Christian Science heals all types of discord by the Master's spiritual method. Thus it conforms to his demand and promise, "He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also."
