Western Evening Herald

In the Western Evening Herald of February 16, under the heading "The Perfect Peptician," your contributor, "Wayfarer," first of all quotes: "As a man 'thinketh in his heart, so is he," and, "There is nothing either good or bad. but thinking makes it so"; and then goes on to say, "I fear that even the most advanced Christian Scientist, for example, would be sorely tried to persuade himself that a jumping molar was but a figment of the imagination."

May I be allowed to point out for the benefit of your readers that Christian Scientists do not look upon disease or pain merely as products of the imagination.

May I also point out that the quotations which "Wayfarer" has used are susceptible of a somewhat more profound interpretation than his application of them suggests. The generally accepted view is that the body governs consciousness; and this seems so self-evident (especially when a molar is jumping) as to be beyond argument. But the Science of Christianity reverses this testimony of the material senses.
