Extracts from Reports of Christian Science Committees on Publication

To the friendly contacts with editors and their staffs was added during the year that of the leading Greek newspaper of Alexandria in connection with the advertisement of our lecture. Throughout the year, the two English daily papers have published the notices of the services of the Cairo and Alexandria societies. These notices now include two testimony meetings a month in Alexandria and the Sunday service in French provided by that society. Both newspapers published—one with a photograph—the Annual Meeting report of The Mother Church, and made a preannouncement of the services on Thanksgiving Day.

Appreciation of the Monitor, with which the English papers are supplied by this office in recognition of their services, is shown not only in the numerous reprints that have appeared, but also in letters. The Egyptian Gazette writes, in part, "We find [the Monitor] not only a most interesting but also a most valuable newspaper;" and the Egyptian Mail: "I need hardly add that [the Monitor] is perhaps the most popular of all the dailies we receive in this office, as it gives a comprehensive and extremely reliable news and feature service whilst avioding the sensationalism which unfortunately mars most journalism today. In many other ways it is in a class of its own and reaches a very high standard to which most editors aspire without the hope of reaching."

A translation of a financial article in the Monitor appeared in the Journal du Commerce, Alexandria, with due credit as to its source.
