It is with deep gratitude that I send this testimony to express my appreciation for the great benefits which I have found in Christian Science, and especially during my service overseas, when it taught me the omnipresence of God as my only defense against the dangers which tried to beset us. By constantly adhering to the truth of being and the demonstration of good I was able to overcome all sense of limitation and to master any evil propensity which tried to predominate.

Shortly before leaving for overseas, a dear friend presented me with a complete set of pamphlets, which I took with me and from which I gained a great deal of benefit. After reading them I distributed a good many to my fellow soldiers who desired them, thereby feeding the hungry and satisfying a desire to help those who were in need.

My service in France and Germany on dispatch duty for our headquarters kept me on the road a great part of the time and gave me a general idea of the situation. On one occasion I was called to make a special night delivery during the Saint-Mihiel offensive, and although my work did not necessitate going up to the front lines of defense, it was a rather hazardous trip because it had to be made in the dark, as lights might have betrayed our location to enemy aeroplanes. In returning about three o'clock in the morning I was thrown from the motorcycle. I was shortly afterwards picked up and taken to a French hospital close by in a semiconscious condition. I had fallen headfirst, lacerating my face, and was in a rather precarious condition. I was very calm through the whole proceeding and held no fear whatever as to the results, and was soon able to clear my thoughts of the error and to know that the real man in God's image and likeness is indestructible, and that any thought of imperfection must be cast out before a complete healing could be realized. I always carried a copy of the vest pocket edition of Science and Health with me, the reading of which I found a great comfort.
