Extracts from Reports of Christian Science Committees on Publication

Relations with the editors and their staffs continue to be cordially friendly. During the year under review no references were made in the local press which required correction.

Excellent facilities were given by the leading English newspapers, the Egyptian Gazette and Egyptian Mail, for publishing the reports of the Annual Meeting of The Mother Church, of excerpts of the Lesson-Sermons, and of notices of services and Reading Rooms. In recognition of these facilities, the two newspapers were supplied with the Monitor, from which frequent reprints, estimated at about one hundred, mostly in the Mail, have appeared. The high esteem in which our daily newspaper is held is shown by the following extracts of letters recently received: "We can assure you that The Christian Science Monitor is very much appreciated in this office, both for the accuracy of the news it gives and the extremely fair-minded way in which it is presented. We are particularly interested here in its foreign news service, which seems to me an outstanding feature of the newspaper, and one which some of our own papers might well afford to copy" (Egyptian Gazette). "The Monitor is a sound source for authoritative articles" (Egyptian Mail). The Coronation Issue of the Monitor evoked special commendation from the Gazette under an article, "Hands Across the Sea." Several copies of this issue were mailed to well-known residents.
