A contribution to the column headed "The Public Health," in your issue of May 15, when referring to certain physicians as writing prescriptions in a way that does not reveal to their patients what they are taking, said, "In this respect they are practicing Christian Science—operating on the minds of their patients."

To assert or intimate that the practice of Christian Science involves hypnotism or any action of the human mind is to declare the very antithesis of Christian Science—a religion which attributes no power whatsoever to mortal mind but ascribes all power to God. Through the understanding of this infinite Mind, God, the healing ministrations of Christian Science are made possible.
