It seems evident that the human family quite generally is engaged in striving to recover from some loss, dislocation, or abnormal condition, related to possessions, position, health, harmony, social or economic status.
There would seem to be individuals who like to be dictated to; they will avoid making a decision or following a definite line of action, and will gladly shift their responsibilities to the shoulders of anyone who shows inclination to carry this burden or to lead them along some particular road.

In your leading article in the Truth Teller of July 22, in which a celebrated criminal lawyer tells what he thinks of allopathy, occurs a statement which may be misleading to some of your readers, and I shall therefore appreciate space in your publication to correct it.

Anybody who has the least knowledge of this religion knows that Christian Scientists do not use material means for healing, but heal exclusively through prayer; and there are thousands who can attest that the healing power of enlightened prayer is as effective today as in the time of the early Christians.

In reply to an extract from an article by a bishop which appeared in your paper, allow me to say that there is much to gain and nothing to lose by doing justice to Christian Science and its Discoverer and Founder, Mary Baker Eddy.
From one who has received so many blessings through the study and practice of Christian Science this testimony goes forth with a great desire to help others who may be struggling to overcome discordant conditions, whether they be of sin or disease.
I am grateful that Christian Science has come into my life, for it has taught me that the truth contained in the Scriptures and spiritually interpreted in Science and Health by our dear Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, is the staff upon which Christ Jesus leaned so trustingly.
