We read in Deuteronomy, "The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms." Mrs. Eddy realized the full significance of these words when she opened the Preface to Science and Health with the statement, "To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings." The truth of these words has been proved to me many times during the past ten years, and I am especially grateful for the help I received from them while in the Army.

In September, 1918, I was taken to an army hospital in France and underwent an operation for acute appendicitis, peritonitis, and a ruptured bladder. One of the attending surgeons was heard to say that I had one chance in about two hundred to live, and the other surgeon told me that I was lucky that I was not with the angels. Had he known that one of the definitions of angels in Christian Science is "God's thoughts passing to man" (Science and Health, p. 581) he might have said I was lucky that I was with the angels.
