My attention has been drawn to an extremely interesting article by your medical correspondent in a recent issue of your paper. In it there is an allusion to Christian Science in which the writer couples it with the teachings of Monsieur Coué. I should be grateful if you would allow me space in your paper to correct the misapprehension of the teaching of Christian Science which this allusion seems to indicate.

Christian Science does not inculcate a blind faith. In her work, "Miscellaneous Writings," the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, writes (p. 97): "Christian Science is not a remedy of faith alone, but combines faith with understanding, through which we may touch the hem of His garment; and know that omnipotence has all power. 'I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me.'"

Christian Scientists do not claim to have achieved full immunity from the trials of human experiences, but in all parts of the globe adherents to this teaching, with humble, grateful hearts, are testifying at the weekly meetings provided for this purpose, to the protection which has been theirs through "faith with understanding."
