A brother recently enclosed to the Journal a "proof" of a "paster" intended to hide the words "Christian Science Tract," that stand at the head of one class of the Society's publications. He argued that there are many persons to whom the words "Christian Science" are an offence, who still might be reached by the Truth thus disguised.
About the same time there was sent the Journal a copy of a periodical conducted by another brother, in which the words "Christian Science" had been carefully suppressed throughout. The contents consisted largely of quotations, more or less direct, from Science and Health; but there was made no acknowledgment of the source whence they—as well as all the Science thought expressed—were derived.
Almost simultaneously with the foregoing, still another said to the present writer: "Why don't you prepare a book in which the declaration that 'there is no reality to evil, or to matter,' is not made; but in which the truth is set forth? There are multitudes of people having intense prejudice against those statements, who yet if led thereto, without knowing whither they were going, could be made to admit their truthfulness. The world is ripe for such a book, and ten million copies could be sold."
