The Work among the Blind

Thinking it might be of interest to the Field I will give an account of the work that is being done by some of the Scientists of Oakland, Cal., at the Home for Adult Blind.

Several years ago one of the Christian Scientists at whose home there was held a weekly meeting for the study of the lessons in the Quarterly, invited to those meetings a neighbor who was blind. She became very much interested and so eager to gain more of the Truth that several persons went to her home at different times and read to her from Science and Health and the Journals, Sentinels, and lectures, helping her to memorize texts of Scripture and passages from Science and Health. Later she became the happy possessor of the Bible in point so that she could read that for herself and study beforehand the responsive reading for each week. She also has an instrument with which she has put many passages of Science and Health into point for herself. During these years, under the patient, faithful guidance of these Christian Scientists, she, with equal patience and perseverance on her part, has made a steady growth in the understanding of Truth and has had some beautiful demonstrations.
