From the February 1884 issue of The Christian Science Journal

This number ends the first years growth of the Journal of Christian Science . It is conceded that the measure of confidence imposed in our enterprise is evidence of its just worth: we are assured by our many friends, and by the constant receipt of testimonials of cures coming through the medium of our columns that the influence of the Journal's teachings shall not stop upon its anniversary, but that the seed of its sowing is blossoming in the hearts and lives of its patrons, bringing to light heretofore hidden blessings—making practical the Christian religion inasmuch as it adapts the metaphysics of Jesus Christ's teachings to the vital need of the sick and the sinner.
