From the February 1899 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The following letter was received by me a few weeks ago from one who, without other help, such as class teaching or church or personal contact with Scientists, and having to overcome, withal, the difficulties of a foreign language, is faithfully trying to make Christian Science his own, and to learn to live it and demonstrate it purely from our text-book, Science and Health, and the other writings of our Leader, in connection with the Bible Lessons, the Journal, and the Weekly. He has never been in any English-speaking country, and even a year ago had the greatest difficulty in reading English with frequent helps of the dictionary, which makes study very tedious and severely tested his earnestness.
