The test of a good religionist, as given by St. James, is, "To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world."

Christian Science places first importance upon works rather than words. A single case of healing accomplished through the understanding of Christian Science is a sufficient proof of the efficacy of its teachings. I should, however, like to assure your correspondent that Christian Scientists are a people who are striving to learn to bear good will to all, and malice to none, and who have found in the teachings of Mary Baker Eddy a concept of God, and of Christ, which is both satisfying and practical.

In her Preface to Science and Health Mrs. Eddy has written (p. xii), "In the spirit of Christ's charity,—as one who 'hopeth all things, endureth all things,' and is joyful to bear consolation to the sorrowing and healing to the sick,—she commits these pages to honest seekers for Truth."
