oston Globe, August, 1905]

   "Official announcement of peace between Russia and
Japan seems to offer an appropriate occasion for the expression
of congratulations and views by representative
persons.  Will you do us the kindness to wire a sentiment
on some phase of the subject, on the ending of the war,
the effect on the two parties to the treaty of Portsmouth,
the influence which President Roosevelt has exerted for
peace, or the advancement of the cause of arbitration."

Mrs. Eddy's Reply

To the Editor of the Globe:
   War will end when nations are ripe for progress.  The
treaty of Portsmouth is not an executive power, although

its purpose is good will towards men.  The government of
a nation is its peace maker or breaker.
   I believe strictly in the Monroe doctrine, in our Constitution,
and in the laws of God.  While I admire the
faith and friendship of our chief executive in and for all
nations, my hope must still rest in God, and the Scriptural
injunction, - "Look unto me, and be ye saved, all
the ends of the earth."
   The Douma recently adopted in Russia is no uncertain
ray of dawn.  Through the wholesome chastisements
of Love, nations are helped onward towards
justice, righteousness, and peace, which are the landmarks
of prosperity.  In order to apprehend more,
we must practise what we already know of the Golden
Rule, which is to all mankind a light emitting light.
