A friend had many times given me copies of the Christian Science Sentinel, which I read with some interest, particularly the "Selected Articles." The answers to criticisms were direct and logical, and many points which had puzzled me were answered to my complete satisfaction. I did not realize it, but my prejudice toward this Science was gradually fading.
