Reports from the Field

[From the Report of the Christian Science Committee for State Institutions and Agencies in New Jersey]

In one of his discourses recorded in Matthew, Christ Jesus uttered these significant words: "I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, ... when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?" The reply was, "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me."

"How is the prison work progressing?" is a question often asked those active in this work. The activities of this Committee are no longer confined to the State Prison at Trenton, the largest state penal institution, as they were when the Committee was organized nearly seven years ago. From the very beginning the scope of the work has broadened with gratifying results and increasing interest, so that instead of regular services being held in one state institution only, the work is being carried on in four large state institutions.
