Letters from the Field

"I am most grateful for The Christian Science Benevolent Association and for the privilege of a visit as a guest at the Christian Science sanatorium. I shall always remember with deep appreciation the loving thoughtfulness and assistance of all the associates I met there during my stay, and the beautiful spirit of harmony on every side, which gave me a little glimpse of heaven. The splendid coordination of all the activities of the sanatorium, and the consecration of the associates, brought out an orderliness and harmony in the daily routine that impressed me as a very practical demonstration of Christian Science, and as a fine object lesson to those of us who were there as guests.

"Every morning when I awoke, the air was vocal with the song of birds in the trees outside my windows; and every day, as through diligent study of the Bible and the writings of Mrs. Eddy there dawned in my thought a clearer consciousness of God and the nature of His reflection, man, my heart echoed the thanksgivings of the birds.

"Like a city that is set upon a hill, our Christian Science sanatorium cannot be hid; nor can its splendid healing work be underestimated. As a beacon light its clear beams invite the wayworn and weary pilgrim there to find shelter and rest from the storm and stress which sometimes beset him on the way from sense to Soul, and where there is given an opportunity to work out some of his problems. For such an opportunity my gratitude is beyond expression.
