In your issue of April 1, a staff correspondent of the United Press reviews a bulletin of the "Associates of the Science of Society at Yale," and makes the statement, "Records of miraculous cures of saints and prophets, Christian Science and Coueism, are just beginning to find scientific explanation in psychiatry and psychoanalysis."

Kindly permit me to say that these terms have no relation in origin or application to Christian Science. They may show that many ills suffered by mankind have a mental origin, but they explain nothing regarding the Principle and practice of Christian Science. Christian Science has a divine origin, and its application is based entirely on spiritual law.

Before Mrs. Eddy discovered Christian Science, she suffered an accident resulting in a serious physical condition. While reading the Bible she experienced an instantaneous recovery from this condition. A further study of the Bible revealed the law which enabled her to prove beyond any question that divine truth was available to heal all kinds of sickness and disease. In her textbook on the subject, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 207) she states in unmistakable terms the sum and substance of her discovery as follows: "There is but one primal cause. Therefore there can be no effect from any other cause, and there can be no reality in aught which does not proceed from this great and only cause." "The spiritual reality is the scientific fact in all things."
