A First Reader and a Second Reader are employed to conduct the regular Sunday services in the Folsom Prison chapel. At each Sunday service there is an average attendance of seventy. The First Reader is also the Christian Science Worker. He arrives at the prison each Saturday morning and has an average of twenty-five interviews with the men and also makes regular tours of the institution. Many men request treatment and also assistance in their study of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. Such men yield readily to Christian Science help, and the healings cover a wide range of false beliefs. Another important result of the healing work at the prison is the spread of Christian Science among the near relatives of the inmates, as evidenced by the many letters and statements made to the workers.
To carry on the work at Preston School, there are two persons employed, a Christian Science worker on a full-time basis, who also acts as First Reader at the regular Sunday services, Sunday school superintendent, and Sunday school teacher, and a Second Reader who also teaches in the Sunday school and assists in the routine work. Some very wonderful healings have been reported. It is gratifying to see the benefits received by the boys who attend the Sunday school regularly and to observe how many of them are applying the understanding they receive. Almost every day boys tell how they have worked out problems of human relations, morals, or health.
