Extracts from Letters

"Previous to entering the service, I had never taken any special interest in Christian Science. I had often picked up my mother's books and read, but with little understanding. After entering the Army I determined to make a thorough study, and at first not having a set of books myself I would borrow from the other fellows, who were glad to help in any way they could. As a chauffeur I had the opportunity of driving around, and have visited the Christian Science reading rooms. Here in France I have been at Romorantin, Nevers, and Paris, and have also attended the Sunday church services in Paris. I was fortunate enough to be located in the same area with a Christian Science chaplain here in France, and we have been holding our Sunday services and Wednesday evening meetings regularly, using the chaplain's room for a reading room.

"I have found Christian Science not only an ever present help for physical ailments but a guide and protection in everyday life. At our first camp in France an attack of influenza was overcome in twenty-four hours. Once while driving my automobile the front wheel was broken in turning to avoid a flooded road, causing the car to go over the bank and land in the river. Through the protection of Principle no one was injured. I am very grateful for the many blessings received from Christian Science."
