A very prominent pastor of a leading Memphis church clipped the reply with this note appended: "According to my lights you have written the truth in the attached lines, and I thank you." Another man in Mississippi wrote: "I read your article on 'Sin and Pain,' and I believe you are right. Please send me a copy of 'Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures' by Mary Baker Eddy."
