Extracts from Letters

"Inclosed you will find money order for five dollars, for War Relief work and The Christian Science Benevolent Association fund. I wish it were as many thousands, for my heart goes out in love and gratitude to our Father-Mother God for the wonderful guidance and protection given my dear son, who had been nearly ten months in France at the time he wrote me how he had been over the top three times in three days, and had waded a shallow river under shell fire. As they started across the river the Germans sent over a barrage, and he said his company went through it without harm. He was fifty-five days in the lines. The last battle he was in, was in the Argonne Forest. That was the last great battle, and he came out of that also without a scratch, and with honor. I owe it all to Christian Science, although he himself was not a Scientist. I knew that he has been guided and protected through the realization of the ninetyfirst psalm. It has been such a wonderful help to me in knowing the truth for my dear boy. I wish to give credit to the article entitled, 'Mother's Victory,' found in the Sentinel some time ago. It was a great help to me to lay all my fears aside for his safety, as many other burdens have been laid at the feet of divine Love. I have been giving small amounts since the war started, off and on whenever I could. But now I must make a greater sacrifice, as I never could pay the debt I owe to divine Love."

"Inclosed please find ten dollars. I wish to give five dollars to the War Relief fund and five dollars to The Christian Science Benevolent Association fund or the Real Estate fund, as the case might be. I was in the United States Navy during the war and I wish to thank all the Christian Scientists for the help I received both materially and mentally. I lost my books when the U.S.S. 'President Lincoln' went down, but when I got back to Hoboken, New Jersey, I was not ashore ten minutes before I had a Science and Health and a Bible give me by the Christian Science War Relief committee."

"I have received so much help and consolation from the study of Christian Science, and, wishing to further the cause, I am sending you a check for one hundred and fifty dollars, to be equally divided among the War Relief fund, The Christian Science Benevolent Association fund, the Real Estate fund, or for whatever it is most needed. I am sending this, not that our Father needs it, but because we need to give to Him a part of what is His own."
