On the occasion of the four hundredth anniversary of the Reformation at Geneva, First Church, Geneva, wished to express the gratitude of Christian Scientists towards the Reform, which protected and developed the reading of the Bible. In the letter addressed to the clergymen, Mrs. Eddy's words referring to the Bible as "the chart of life" (Science and Health, p. 24), were quoted. The clergymen sent in reply a very beautiful letter of gratitude. In the canton of Neuchâtel a clergyman had a very interesting conversation with a Christian Scientist, and at the end of the talk asked if he could have a copy of Science and Health to read.

The Christian Science Monitor is becoming more and more appreciated in the towns of Lausanne, Montreux and Neuchâtel, and also in the international circles of Geneva. The Journal de Montreux has often published articles from the Monitor, as has also the Express de Neuchâtel. In Geneva, several letters of appreciation have been received by the local Monitor representative, including one from the Japanese delegation and another from the International Education Bureau. In addition to this, one of the heads of a section in the League of Nations remarked to a Scientist, in the presence of a third person, that he read the Monitor regularly, and appreciated greatly certain articles in the Weekly Magazine Section.
