Procinciale Overijsselsche en Zwolsche Courant

A copy of the Zwolsche Courant of January 14 came under my notice, giving a short review of a lecture on "Religion outside the Church," including some comments about Christian Science. Summarizing, the lecturer said: "Those currents have not flown high. If they were of great importance, they should have got a much greater adherence by now."

Would you allow me, in the interest of a right enlightenment of your readers, to correct in a few words the above statement, which, in so far as Christian Science is concerned, is wholly incorrect. In fact, this movement, established a little more than fifty years ago by Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, in June, 1934, already numbered more than twenty-six hundred churches and societies, spread all over the civilized world, as appears from the Annual Report of The Mother Church, which was published at the time in many Netherlands newspapers. Mrs. Eddy also gave to the world The Christian Science Monitor, an international daily newspaper, known and praised everywhere for its great journalistic value and high moral standard. And recently a new and far larger publishing house for its world-wide publications was completed in Boston.
