Extracts from Letters

"I suppose it is proper to express here some of the gratitude I feel for Christian Science and what it has meant to me in the Navy. From the very first time I put on the Navy blue until I finally came back in civilian clothes, the Bible and our textbook were a very constant help and source of inspiration. The periodicals when I got them were always timely and always were of assistance in the problem I had in hand. There never was a time that Science failed me when I truly and with my whole heart depended upon it. I was never sick, although my health record shows that I spent two per cent of two years under medical attendance. I was stationed in Santo Domingo, D. R., for fifteen months, and although many of the men around fell ill with the fever, I never had a touch of it. I am very grateful for having been able to help some of the boys from Science homes when they were under the belief of this so-called tropical fever. I had many healings, physical, mental, and moral, and to tell of them all here would take more space than this page allows. I only know that I have a very profound feeling of gratitude for the life and work of our beloved Leader."
