Materialism Not Dead (S688c: 1911)

Editor Charles H. Smith's Note: Excerpt from a letter to the Editor sent to The Spiritual Journal1 and then printed as a note under this title on page 392 of the Light (London) issue of 19 August 1911.

     In a recent letter to 'The Spiritual Journal,' Dr. A. R. Wallace asks that a statement attributed to him to the effect that 'Materialism is as dead as priestcraft,' shall be annulled. He says: 'I believe I never wrote or published any such statement, and besides it is totally untrue. Materialism is still rampant, among men of science, both here and in America.'
