The statement that the teachings of Christian Science accord with the remarks made in an address, reported in your issue of the 1st inst., is very largely correct, but might be made more explicit, hence this letter.

The healing method of Christian Science follows that of Christ Jesus, and healing is accomplished by a realization and absolute acknowledgment of the ever-present and infinite power of God, Spirit, and the unreality of matter, all error, or any seeming condition opposed to His perfect spiritual creation, which, as stated in Genesis, He saw to be "very good," matter, sin, sickness, disease, and death not being made, but being illusions.

Most of the healings of Jesus were instantaneous, as were also very many of those of Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, who writes on page 109 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health withKey to the Scriptures," "I knew the Principle of all harmonious Mind-action to be God, and that cures were produced in primitive Christian healing by holy, uplifting faith; but I must know the Science of this healing, and I won my way to absolute conclusions through divine revelation, reason, and demonstration."
