From the August 1906 issue of The Christian Science Journal

This article was later republished in The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany: My. 116:1-118:7

The following letter is so right and requisite that I hereby endorse it for the benefit of the reader.

At a time of contagious disease, Christian Scientists endeavor to rise in consciousness to the true sense of the omnipotence of Life, Truth, and Love, and this great fact in Christian Science realized will stop a contagion.

In time of religious or scientific prosperity, certain individuals are inclined to cling to the personality of its Leader. This state of mind is sickly; it is a contagion —a mental malady, which must be met and overcome. Why? Because it would dethrone the First Commandment, "Thou shalt have one God."
