Letters from the Field

"With great gratitude the Literature Distribution Committee looks back upon the second half year of 1922. In recent years only Herolds of 1915 were at the committee's disposal, and we are, therefore, all the happier to have received new Herolds every month of this half year. We were repeatedly informed by the Publishing Society that they were sending us the Herold gratis through the kindness of some friends who wished to subscribe in favor of Christian Scientists across the Atlantic. Thus two hundred and sixty-six subscriptions were sent to us monthly. The gift of a friend enabled the committee to order 100 Herold, 10 Héraut, 20 Journal, and 10 Sentinel subscriptions. In addition to this, fifteen Der Herold subscriptions for the national schools, and Monitor subscriptions for all the large hotels, were ordered. The same friend also presented the committee with one hundred copies of the textbook, 'Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures' by Mary Baker Eddy, and twenty-three hundred pamphlets.

"The new Herolds made it possible to visit again all the old addresses, which caused great joy. The chaplain of the Moabit prison said he gave the prisoners the textbook and the Herolds with pleasure. He told of one prisoner who had been sentenced for life and who had read the textbook. This man's character had been so changed that he had been discharged after twenty-four years, and had found a situation in the country. In Charlottenburg we have also received permission to supply the prison in the Kant Strasse with literature; and a textbook, many Herolds, and lectures have been willingly accepted there. The director of the prison at Tempelhof has also asked for a textbook, which has been given him. In the city prison and in the head police depot, too, a textbook has been accepted.
