Extracts from Letters
[Received from prisoners]
"May I not tender the expression of my sincere thanks for the kind interest your committee has taken in us prisoners in giving us the opportunity to hear a Christian Science lecture? The message received by me was one of comfort and cheer. It will be an ever present aid in mastering the mortal mind and its vagaries. When the opportunity presents itself, will not you express to the lecturer my grateful thanks for bringing to us his message in person? Assure him the message was well and gratefully received by all who heard it, and will be the signpost pointing to the true pathway leading to the better life."
"Your explanation of the life and works of the Master and the different characters of the Bible, also your portrayal of the character of God as divine Principle, were clear and concise. Many of the boys around me who came prepared to scoff and make fun were all attention before you had uttered two dozen words. This interested me as I saw their backs straighten up and their necks let out a few links of the rubber. After it was over some of the talks were interesting, as the prisoners discussed the latest event in their own way. A good many were looking for something classical or complex, but they were set at ease by your most simple and direct talk. Many were heard to remark that never before in the assembly room had there been such rapt attention and strict decorum observed. I can honestly say that it was the most enjoyable and interesting hour that I have ever spent at any time in any place."
"I have many, many reasons to be very thankful for the great help of Christian Science, as it has, since I came here, changed my mode of living and life entirely. I give thanks every night to God for our revered Leader, Mary Baker Eddy. We are given all the Christian Science reading material we need here; and that is another thing we are all grateful for."
