From the February 1884 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Letters lately received from western cities, and especially from the city of Chicago, by members of the Christian Science Association of Boston, contain the singular statement that "it has been represented by some practitioners of mental healing, in those cities, that the book, "Science and Health," is not for sale to any but students of Christian Science, either as personal students of the author of the work, or of the graduates of her college in Boston."

None of the graduates of Mrs. Eddy's institution could ever have made that statement, since it is so contrary to the facts of the case. The work is for sale to anybody and everybody who would like to read it and can pay the publisher's price—three dollars. "This new school of medicine," which is taking New England by storm, having its head-quarters in Boston, is slowly, but steadily, sending forth its thoroughly qualified healers all over the land.

The book, "Science and Health," ought to be in every family, and one member at least of every family should learn the science of healing at the Metaphysical College in Boston. We might then have a healthy and happy land.
