From the September 1894 issue of The Christian Science Journal

In conversation with a business man on the subject of Christian Science, he asked this question: "If I were a Christian Scientist, how could I over-reach my neighbor? The answer was," If you were a Christian Scientist, you would have no desire to over-reach him; but your only thought would be to do unto him as you would have him do unto you. " And here seems to be the very rub in business: the feeling, in the main, to be honest, counteracted by the tendency to over-reach, or get the better of, a competitor in trade for the purpose of worldly gain.
