Extracts from Letters

"I am indeed grateful for the many blessings received through Christian Science. I am particularly grateful at this time for the many activities of The Mother Church. When our battalion arrived in France we were billeted several kilometers from the medical headquarters. This was a source of fear to the boys, of getting sick and not having a doctor right on hand. Christian Science met this condition for me through the understanding that God is the only Physicians, and He is not 'afar off' but here and everywhere.

"Next in blessings, I had the privilege of attending a Christian Science service held at the edge of a wood adjoining a big chateau. There was no other building near. Nine of the boys of our battalion were in attendance, four had never before attended a Christian Science service, and only two were members of a Christian Science church. Next came the blessing of The Christian Science Monitor. It came first through my work as a soldier, for as chief orderly in the replacement depot it fell to me to distribute a large package of Monitors that came from the War Relief committee. I became a self-appointed distribution committee. Then the long winter evenings were well spent reading the Monitor and studying the metaphysical article on the Home Forum page.
