From the Field

[From a Report of the Christian Science Prison Committee of the City of New York]

The growth of the work of this committee during the past year has given much cause for rejoicing. We desire to take this opportunity to thank all who have so generously sent in literature in response to our request for it. Our loan libraries in each of the various institutions are becoming more and more active, and the questions the men and women ask our workers show that they are students of the Lesson-Sermon in the Christian Science Quarterly and thoughtful readers of the Bible and of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. At one of the institutions over fifty per cent of the men who attend our services are daily studying the Lesson-Sermon and trying to practice what they are finding there.

Early in the year several requests came to the committee for literature in the Federal Prison, Manhattan. Permission had to be obtained from the Federal Department of Prisons in Washington, District of Columbia. In reply to our request for permission to place the Bible, Science and Health, and subscriptions to the Quarterly, Sentinel, and Monitor, a letter was received from the Federal authorities granting us the desired permission.
