From the August 1897 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The following letter is interesting as showing the fact that the consistent lives of Christian Scientists are coming into appreciation in the business world. The letter was written by an attorney-at-law residing and doing business in Charlevaix, Michigan, whose name is not given, as we have not asked his permission to use it:—

Mrs. M. A. E., C. S., Iron Mountain, Mich.

Dear Madam:—I write to ask you, if there is in your city a Christian Scientist in the business of produce commission merchant? If not, is there a Scientist in the grocery business, who handles fruits and vegetables? I understand I am taking some liberty, and trespassing upon your time coming to you with any such errand. My reason for it is that I am fully persuaded that a Scientist is always and everywhere an honest man, and as I would like to do some business of this kind in your place, I would feel more comfortable in dealing with one of this faith, than any other.

Hoping this may not put you to any inconvenience, I am,
Yours truly,
