Services are now being conducted at regular stated intervals in the following state institutions: State Prison at Trenton, the State Prison Farm near Bordentown, and the State Prison Farm near Leesburg in Cape May County, State Reformatory at Rahway, State Reformatory at Annandale, and the State Hospital for the Insane at Greystone Park.

A lecture on Christian Science was delivered at the State Prison at Trenton on Sunday, February 28. The lecture was given close attention by the one hundred and fifty men who attended. In accordance with the Manual of The Mother Church, the invitation to the lecturer was extended by the branch church at Trenton, but the expenses of the lecture were paid from the funds of this committee. By permission of the prison warden, several active members of the Trenton church attended the lecture.

First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Burlington had charge of the services at the State Prison Farm at Bordentown for the past three months. The men attending the services signed a joint letter of appreciation and gratitude to the Christian Science churches for the help received from these services and for the literature. The workers from the church in Haddonfield are conducting the services here during the present quarter.
