Extracts from Reports of Christian Science Committees on Publication


Throughout the past year, in no instance has there appeared in the press of Wyoming a misleading statement or an attack on either Christian Science or Mrs. Eddy. The press has also shown its friendliness in republishing one hundred and four articles and poems, with due credit given to The Christian Science Monitor. Of this number, ninety-seven were published in the Laramie Press.

Clippins, excerpts of the Lesson-Sermons, from thirty-five newspapers throughout the state were sent in by Assistant Committees on Publication. This is an increase of four newspapers over last year. These thirty-five papers quite thoroughly cover the population of Wyoming, and as evidence that these excerpts are read a letter from a man living in Illinois reached this office. His letter was addressed to a newspaper editor of Wyoming, who had turned it over to a Christian Science Society. In the letter he had taken exception to some statement in our Lesson-Sermon excerpt, and said: "I am deeply interested. I pray I may hear more from this." This letter was turned over to the Committee on Publication for Illinois, who in turn directed our friend to the nearest Christian Science Reading Room for literature. All publications of excerpts of the Lesson-Sermons are accepted by editors without charge, and many of them are published where there is no branch of The Mother Church.
