Extracts from Letters

"It may be of interest to you to know a few details of the activities of Cour-Cheverny, headquarters of the Signal Corps Replacement Depot in France, now that our meetings here are at an end, due to return of troops to the United States. We were fortunate in having a Christian Science chaplain attached to our organization.

"Meetings have been held regularly at his office on Sundays and Wednesday evenings, services being held in accordance with the Manual of The Mother Church, since November. A committee of three, consisting of two corporals and one private were elected as an executive board, who arranged the details of the meetings and designated the Readers. Readers were changed each week, the First Reader officiating at the Wednesday evening service. The first meetings were held without music, in the chaplain's room, but later the committee obtained the use of a comfortable room with a piano, and later discovered a soloist among the members, thus having 'regular' services. Many benefits, too numerous for detail (including many healings), have been experienced by the members, who gave testimony thereof."
