To the Readers of "Science and Health" and the "Journal of Christian Science."

From the February 1884 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Dear Friends,—Time and again I have read the records of your success in applying the Truth you have gathered from these two sources, the book and the journal, and rejoiced that so many have so well received the Word into waiting fertile soil that it has sprung up good seed towards the "healing of the nations."

But do you ever suspect what you miss of the spirit of that Word by not listening to it as it falls directly from the lips of its living and only interpreter, Mrs Mary Eddy, the author of "Science and Health," and the editor of this journal?

If you wanted to understand perfectly any other science you would not think of poring over abstruse treatises on it and being satisfied therewith, though you might be able, in a crude way, and after a certain fashion, to demonstrate some of its mighty verities. No; if you were en rapport with the subject, you would strain every nerve, and put forth every effort to secure the services of a professional teacher of that science.
