Some time ago I was involved in a lawsuit, one of the main questions being whether the defendant had published a defamatory circular. The only evidence of this was the fact that one of the envelopes containing it had been addressed in the defendant's handwriting. The proceedings were based on this envelope. Unfortunately, some time after they had commenced, the person to whom the envelope in question had been sent passed on, and it was not legally permissible for any witness to give evidence of what the deceased had said. It was therefore vital that another envelope addressed in the defendant's handwriting and containing a copy of the defamatory circular should be obtained from a living addressee. A list of all the addressees was in existence, and application was made to them all, but without any result whatever. The hearing of the case by the court was now rapidly approaching, and without this vital document the defendant was bound to win the case, and justice would have been defeated.

At this juncture I put my problem to a Christian Science practitioner, who promised to give me the necessary treatment, but advised me also to take all the human footsteps. I held constantly in thought two statements from page 542 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy: "Though error hides behind a lie and excuses guilt, error cannot forever be concealed," and, "Let Truth uncover and destroy error in God's own way, and let human justice pattern the divine."
